Why is my PS3 saying there is not enough space for a game, but there is plenty of space?

Feb 18, 2014 - Me too when i tried to get gta5 it wont work. Minimum of 10.4GB of free space,thus taking the game over the full available free space of 9.3GB. Mar 2, 2013 - The most likely cause for this is not some sort of copy protection but. AFAIK the PS3 game system uses FAT32 and cannot read NTFS disks. Or more ) it gives me can't copy,not enough space, Despite Having Larger Free Space. Confused OK let me simplify I had a drive C: with only 20mb free so I. I'm not sure by what though because I don't even play a lot of games on it, have any pictures or music programs installed and I cannot figure out what is on the computer's hard drive. If it is adware or spyware, I also cannot tell because when I tried to install and run an adware/spyware detector, it can't do it because there is not enough disk.

'One strange thing I've really been bothered for a week! Each time I downloaded a new game on my PS3, it keeps telling me that there is not enough free space on the system storage to install the downloaded game files. It drives me crazy now because there is plenty of space for the files. I've deleted a few GB since I saw the message at first, but it still says that I need to remove more. It's too hard to give up my old games to get the new. What should I do with the message 'not enough space in system storage PS3'? How can I make full use of the rest free space?'

Many PS3 users have ever received the message telling the storage is not enough to install games. However, there is space left to be used. Sounds unreasonable? Firstly, let's figure out why; then follow our guide to solve the problem with a few simple steps.

PS3 Digital Download Space Requirements

You need DOUBLE space, which means there should be twice the amount of room than the game file requires. For example, eight gigs for the download while 8 for the install. Thus, to successfully install the game, you'll need around 17-18 gigs of free space on the PS3 storage device. When installing a game or DLC, the original downloaded copy is kept in case something terrible happens during install. If something does, the install file will be corrupted while the original will be fine, not forcing you to re-download the entire file again. That's how the download system works.

How to Solve 'Not Enough Space in System Storage' in PS3

You can try the two methods below to solve not enough space in system storage in PS3 correctly.

Solution 1. Delete 'Game Data' Folder

Most Blu-ray games store some of their files in the PS3 Game Data Utility, which take up a considerable amount of disk space after a while. You can't just format PS3 since the formatting will erase all the data on it. Instead, you can safely delete any of the folders like game data to recover some space. The data will be reinstalled automatically from the Blu-ray disk the next time that you play the game.

Solution 2. Upgrade HDD

'Not enough space in system storage'..On an average, 6 out of 10 people who use PS3 to play games are likely to be informed of the insufficient storage to install games and some other types of files. Why not upgrade disk of PS3 to a larger one? It's the most recommended way to solve the problem. However, people feel hesitated because they don't want to lose the games and files saved on the old disk. Don't worry. EaseUS free partition manager can ease your worry by cloning old disk data to the new one.

Warning: the data and partitions on the target disk will be deleted. Make sure that you've backed up important data in advance. If not, do it now.

If there are some partitions on the destination disk, please confirm to delete the partitions and data on the destination disk. In order to proceed with the operation, you should either allow EaseUS Partition Master to delete all the partitions on the destination hard disk or click Back to choose another destination hard disk.

I have a 60GB SSD and a 2TB HDD and the SSD is used for one game, Total War: Warhammer(TWW), which takes up 34GB. To clarify, the SSD have ~55GB of usable space and the only thing on it is TWW á 34GB. This gives me ~22GB of free space on the SSD. Steam is installed on the HDD and I'm on Windows 7 64-bit system. Please correct me if I'm wrong on this but how TWW's patching work is that it needs to allocate the entire space of the game so that it can open each file and rewrite the code.

The issue is that each time TWW needs to patch itself it tries to allocate additional 34GB which I don't have on the SSD. Steam tells me 'there is not enough free disk space'.Instead, I've solved the issue by manually moving the game to the HDD and then back again to the SSD every time a patch is up, so it downloads the patch on the HDD then I move the game back to the SSD.

I would like to find an automatic patching of the game so I don't have to manually move the game between drives/discs every time there is a new patch. Ideally, the game would stay on the SSD and the download and patching would happen from the HDD so that it allocates the space on the HDD instead.

Can it be solved by removing the association to the library on the SSD for Steam and create a link that leads to the game folder on the SSD? I'd think that this way, Steam would download the patch on the HDD and then update the files on the SSD thinking that Steam would still be working on the HDD. Is this the best way to do it or does it involve future problems with patching TWW?

My question touches the concept of the answer to this question, 'How can I move Steam games to another disk?', asked in 2010. In my case, I wouldn't use Steam Mover since I would only need the 'mklink'-command but as described in the previous paragraph is this a bad idea and should I stay with my current solution?

Unfortunately as it stands, this is currently not possible. I ran into the same issue with Hollow Knight last week, when an update was sent out. The update itself was only 1GB, but Steam automatically allocated an additional 9GB for the update. The only method seems to be to either clear out disk space before you install the patch or just stick the game on your HDD entirely and play it from there.

I'm not sure if this will help or not, but I think I figured this out on my Steam.

I went to steam->settings->Steam Library Folders

I added my other hard drive (G:/Program Files(x86)/Steam) as a new library folder, and set it to 'default'

Then I cleared the download cache and tried again, and voila! It worked! It looks like it is using my G:/ drive folder as the download cache and then transfers the patch data to the other drive once it is done.

Hope this helps!
