Is index.bin an important file in GTA V directory?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So rn im getting rid of all mods from my GTA V installation as they cause my game to crash and i want to play online. I have already cleared everything already but im not sure about this file.

Also, before i delete. Does anyone see anything unusual here?

None of them are large files, worst case you just "verify cache" and redownload any files you got rid of.  Should only take a few minutes so no worries. 

For what it's worth, my GTA V install doesn't even have an "index.bin" in the root directory.

i don't have steam version, i bought the physical disc so it's rockstar warehouse version. I don't wanna get banned from online so i want to get rid of every possible file that could interfere.

Ah I see.  A bit more of a nuisance then I guess.  I did edit my post above with more info.  If you wonder about other files I can post my listing, but I did have a few single player mods in at one point so it's possible I'll have some non-stock files that could throw you off.

One thing you could do that would save quite a bit of time and eliminate the need to download anything large (but is still kinda slow) is make a copy of everything in the folder that's over about 100 MB, then delete the folder and reinstall.  Then, put all those large files back, replacing what's in the new directory, then run your updates.  That should set everything back to stock while avoiding the need to download any big files since it will detect that they're already present.  Any large files like that will almost certainly just be bulk data storage for the game and nothing that came from a mod.
