Money Sunset - executable file size RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Windows 10, I went to Apps and Features and found that Microsoft Money Plus (Sunset) is allocated a whopping 101 GB.

    However, my .mny file is only 19.2 MB.

    Do you think the Money program has been corrupted ?

    Thanks for any insights.

  • On my Money Sunset, the Apps and Features shows 97.6 Mb.  That is the total size of the installed Money program files.  And if I look at the properties of the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Money Plus folder, it also shows 97.6 Mb.

    However, there have been reports of the 100 Gb number as far back as Windows 7 .  See, for example,


    So Windows reporting this huge size appears to be a bug in Windows itself.  I thought that it was fixed with Windows 10, but maybe not for all versions.  FWIW I am running Windows 10 Home 1803.

    Note that your .mny file is not part of the installation files.  It is in your Documents folder and its size is not included in the size of the Money installation files.
