Skyrim Nexus Safety Load ##VERIFIED##
Vortex runs several safety checks when you set your staging folder to prevent you from placing it somewhere where it could be deleted, however, it may still be possible in specific circumstances to set it incorrectly. The most common mistake is having your staging folder(s) and download folder(s) inside the Vortex install directory (typically C:\Program Files\Black Tree Gaming Ltd\Vortex). This folder and all of its contents are completely removed each time Vortex updates, so any data placed inside the folder is at risk of being permanently deleted.
