    So I used to be subscribed to 1020 addons

    I unsubscribed from hundreds and had 742 subscribed too

    I questioned why i still had little storage

    Then I did this

    300 GB free now

    Why would you have subscribed to 742 addons?

    I used to have 1020

    Now I have 742

    I've been on Gmod for the past 3 years and I've played countless servers where I had downloaded the content.

    Why not delete the content you don't need?

    To expand on what @Blackquill said, you can go ahead and delete everything, and then connect to nebulous and let it do its thing, then pause the game, go to options, the multiplayer tab and their should be a drop down menu that says something along the lines of allow all custom content, you should change that to disallow so that servers can't fill up your PC with junk. Any time you wanna download some content from a server just turn it back on, it's a great way to filter out stuff say if you're joining a server once and don't really intend to join again

    Bro tip, get a 3 TB plus drive. Sea gate barracuda is the one I have now. Storage space becomes a non issue.
