20.5 GB. But those aren't really WADS, but all kinds of software/utilities, patchers, source ports, area 51 level stuff.

I have two DOOM folders:

 

DOOM Classic (so it's not confused with DOOM 2016 or DOOM Eternal, and has WADs, mods and more)

DOOM Vanilla (just vanilla settings, either in Crispy, Retro or now GZDoom, all software rendering, obviously GZ is not real vanilla, no mods)

 

Total is about 7.5 and 1.5 gb each. Total of 9+ gb.

My stuff is kinda scattered around everywhere, but it's fairly small, about 300MB+... at least of what I have in one place lol. I have a few that are in their own folders, but I expect that number to grow bigger in time. I honestly have not checked out too many of the really big (as in size) wads, that could be why it's so small too lol.

I have a lot of pretty messy folders with doom wads.

So, approx - 2-3GB of Doom Wads and Source ports. and 2GB Doom 64 Stuff

1 gb, but considering how much space my computer has left already, that's a ton.

I just have a chocolate doom folder, a prboom/glboom folder, and a gzdoom folder, and a wads folder.

 

It's honestly surprising how much space a single wad can take up.

Most, if not all my wads I put a copy in each source port's folder, which is very dumb on my part, I could just move the wad I want to play into the folder with the source port I want to use, instead of just having a copy of all of them in each source port's folder.

If all of your doom stuff doesn't fall under a single top-level directory (I highly recommend it; very convenient!) then try to estimate the total size of all of them combined. Either way, include everything: source ports, mods, personal projects, midis, maps, tools etc.

 

As for me, 11.7 gigabytes consisting of 3,879 files in 512 directories. I would imagine mods for GZDoom make up at least 90% of that.

atm

 

Size of the DOOM folder: 13 GB (39 489 Files, 881 Folders)

Size of the DOOM shortcuts folder: 783 KB (326 Files, 29 Folders)

 

Meticulously systematized ofc, with 1:1 backup on a different drive. : >
