[Tex/LaTex] How large is the FULL install of TexLive


How large is a FULL install of TexLive? (2> and what about the RECOMMENDED install of TeXLive and also of MiKTeX?)

Best Answer

Reserved disc space for MiKTeX and/or TeX Live:

Basic Installation: takes minimum of 1.2GB
Full Installation: takes minimum of 4.5GB, but usually less than 5.5GB

Recommended Installation reserves 3.2GB.

I recommend a full installation, so all packages are installed, in case one has no internet connection.
