Logic Studio 8 says 43.9 GB will install. Only 23 GB was installed. Anyone know why?

    I have just installed Logic Studio 8.

    It was onto a 250 GB hard drive with 160 GB of free space..

    Half way through the pre-install process Logic presents a dialogue box that says it would need 43.9 GB of hard drive space.

    What had been installed occupied 23 GB.

    23GB is much less than the 43.9 GB that Logic said that it needed.

    I had done the install properly according to the instructions.

    Does this happen to everyone?

    Is there some extra stuff that needs to be installed?

    Anyone know what is happening?

    I don't remember, but with a large app I usually find more space left over than I expect.

    Installers often overstate what they need, usually a worst case depending what you have installed already (some files are shared with other apps), sometimes they need more just during the install.

    Why not try loading up some software instruments, pre-sets, and loops? It'll soon complain if you're missing anything.
