Not enough space popup... but there is enough space?

Post by jenstl on Wed 19 Aug 2015, 05:44

Not sure what I am doing wrong here but I am opening one .rar and and trying to move over the files and I am getting an error part way through that there is not enough space yet the drive has 100gb. Not sure what I am missing here.

I just had an epiphany that it is my C drive that is the problem.. I'm leaving this here in case I am wrong. Will delete.

Hey there, I think it might be the C drive, yeah.
Maybe it's installing there and not to storage.

Hi there, @jenstl! Very Happy

Yes, it looks like it's extracting to C: and that's why you are getting that error. Did you choose the D: drive for extraction?

And you should really try making a little more space in the C: drive. Not just for this case, but some apps need space in C: exclusively, and having so little space left could cause problems in the future.

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!

I'm not aware of the files extracting "automatically" to C:, unless you chose that drive. You could open the folder window of an empty folder, in the D: drive, and drag + drop the files from the .RAR, into that D: drive folder. But OK.

As for "breaking the family", I guess that's not so much a problem about the update (my own saves still work fine), as it is about unstable and glitchy TS4 saves in general. See #2 of the guide here:

Try restoring an earlier version of your save...even if you might lose some in-game progress.

I was assuming that it would be the stuff that goes to My Documents. It's specifically the GP01/ClientFullBuild that it gets stuck on every time. I have the game loaded, the popups showed for the pack, I could see newcrest. Perhaps its a Mod that I have causing this issue. I was able to enter build mode on a house and everything.
