The current installer is 303Mbytes. That's huge.

It looks like the test files make up for most of the installer size.
Without installing them, the install dir is only 120MB and 58MB compressed. Almost 6 times less than the original exe !! And yes, even with "tools" and Pronterface selected.

I'm sure some people use those "test files", but that's certainly not the case of most people. I didn't even know those existed until today.

A thin installer should be provided, without those test files.

In regions where data usage is metered and not inexpensive I believe separating samples is a sensible and considerate delivery option. I would assume also less expense for Prusa server bandwidth usage bills.

@bubnikv That's not really user-friendly.
