Opencv 3.3.0 disk space

asked 2017-11-14 05:13:17 -0600

Hi there,

Recently I have installed opencv 3.3.0 with Caffe according to this tutorial: After installation, I discovered that my OpenCV folder takes approximately 7.2GB of disk space. I would like to know if there is anything we can do to free some space, although I'm using a NVidia Jetson TX2 and there is still 11GB left. Thanks!

Cheers, Jake

hi there, it seems to happen quite often, lately, that new users post duplicate questions here.

if you have any idea, how that happened (flaw in the website / form ?), let us know, please !

@berak Maybe because of poor internet connection? Sorry for the inconvenience.

don't feel sorry, it's probably not your fault, and we'd like to find out, if there's something to repair !

so, your connection broke, and that resulted in 2 posts ?

after successfully installing opencv (do some tests !), you are safe to delete the build folder, it is no more needed.

(and yes, your numbers seem to be accurate, if you built with the contrib modules)
