Since the HDD is full now (my lib too big):
Is there a (easy) way to split it all - update, download, clean, verify?
So like everything from 'a'-'m' to HDD1 and 'n'-'z' to HDD2?
Don't forget there are also games which start with a number, not only alphabets. Maybe there should be an option like "#" which means anything that doesn't start with an alphabet.
I've been requesting a similar feature in the past, but I am unsure how exactly it should be implemented. For instance, one might run out of space also on two separate HDDs, so should there be an option to divide the collection to even more paths? After all, I've already hit the space limitation twice, first having to divide my GOG installers to two separate 2TB drives, then they became too small so I replaced them with two 5TB HDDs but now even them started to become too crowded, etc. (so now I bought one 18TB USB HDD).
You can manually divide it though, ie. run update to your full manifest file, then divide it to two separate manifest files in notepad or whatever, and run gogrepoc twice, with each partial manifest file to different paths. Just be careful about the formatting, you need to add additional ['s and ]'s at the end or start of each partial manifest file, and also figure out the correct line where to split the manifest file (ie. where exactly is the line where the information for the previous game ends, and the information for another game starts).
EDIT: And naturally you have to manually move those installers which will be in the second partial manifest file, to the other hard drive, before you do anything else. Otherwise there will be lots of orphaned files etc...
It is a bit of a hassle because if you want to keep the verification information for the future, you need to combine those two partial files to one full which you then "update" again and divide again for the download/clean/verify etc.
I didn't combine them, I just ran update again and the divided the new main manifest file to two separate ones, and ran clean + verify again.
I am not doing that anymore as I just bought a 18 TB external USB hard drive for my GOG installers, and some other stuff. That should be sufficient for the rest of... 2023?
