​Hello I made a big mistake on not backing up my esms during cleaning and I used "verify integrity of game files" to gain the esms back. After this I followed the first case in using the ​Overwrite​ in Mod Organizer and deleted the TES5Edit backups but instead of having Cleaned Update ESM, Cleaned Dawnguard ESM, etc. I only have the Cleaned Update ESM that I've dragged to the top. This overwrite contains all the mentioned esms because I cleaned all the esms beforehand and didn't use the overwrite procedure until afterwards. Please tell me how I can amend this. If there is something I've not been clear on or if you'd like more details please ask away. Thank You.

Open the 'mods' folder in Explorer and create 3 new folders for the other DLC, ie. : Cleaned Dawnguard, Cleaned Hearthfires & Cleaned Dragonborn.

Now open the existing Cleaned Update mod and drag/drop each ESM into its own folder.

This will mean there are now 4 "Cleaned" versions in separate folders (mods in MO's left pane) which you can order and activate as per normal.

Thank you for the quick feedback. The Cleaned Update folder also includes a meta.ini document. Should I leave this as is?

Yeah, MO should create new ones when you start it again with the new mods folders. It's an internal file that MO uses to describe what that mod contains.

I've checked the new folders but they don't have a meta.ini

You can do 2 things:

  1. manually create the new meta.ini files by using the existing one as a template
  2. don't worry about them

You game won't break by doing either.
