Will Only Disabling GMod Addons Reduce Load Times?

I’ve got a metric shit ton of addons that I don’t want to get rid of, but they really make the game take about 8-12 minutes to startup and it’s annoying. So if I simply disable them, and not unsubscribe/uninstall, will that reduce the loading time?

And no, I don’t want to permanently get rid of any.

Try this: Disable all of them, restart, and see if it has any noticeable difference.

What Robotboy said but also try unmounting games you don’t need mounted. Those take a long time to load. In all honesty you’ll only ever need Counter-Strike: Source mounted and maybe HL2 Episode 2.
