    1. isnt it because you used the tweaker without backing up the original files?

      this means all the files changed by the tweaker and en patches will get downloaded again

    2. I'm having the same trouble with you, probably because the story patch.

      Are you using story patch? if you are, try check your backup directory in "pso2_bin\data\win32\"

      If there are folder named "backupEnPreStoryPatch" or something like that, it means the restoration of backup files are failed.

      Then move the content to "pso2_bin\data\win32\backup\Story Patch\" and try manually restored the backup files.

      Hopefuly it helps

    3. If it's been a while since you installed the patches, it's possible you still had the old backup paths. The tweaker recently changed them from data/win32/Pre(PatchName)backup to data/win32/backup/(PatchName), but didn't move the backups to these folders automatically. Check to see if those are the file paths you have, and if they are still the old ones, the old backup files are probably still there, so you should delete them to not have the excess files that are never going to be touched.
