Be aware there are some new files in the HS folder that grow in size when hacks are used. I already tried and immediately deleted the HS folder, downloaded the manual install, and kept both. I even kept a copy after the HS update overnight so I can compare all 3 folders for file differences.
Now you'll make a liar out of me. Jk jk. Um, I'm not sure off the top of my head but the list of files in the HS folder and in the asc folder within the HS folder grew substantially after my first CA closing for trying to use win2000 comp. mode, then grew more after the error popped up for hack detection using an injector. I compared the 3 folders and sure enough there are some new file extensions placed in there now. So I just played it safe and deleted HS and reinstalled it. Luckily after each update i clean run the game first. and sure enough HS had another update. Then I close it and reopen clean one more time. Close again and run on main with hacks. But I always run those first 2-3 times on a backup just in case. Call me paranoid but that folder grew in size.
