Not enough free space on Hard Drive

4 replies 257 views Edited Apr 24, 2013

Last night I tried to download a game from the Playstation Store(11.5Gigs), and was prompted with the message that I don't have enough free space to download it. I looked into it, and saw I only had 4.5Gigs of free space, so I cleared out some old saves/game data and ended up with 22Gigs.  After about 20 more tries of attempting to install the game, each time I'm given the message that I still don't have enough free space for it. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem?

You acrually need double what the game is so for this game you need 23gb first it downloafs the file 11.5 than installs the game another 11.5 once gsme is installed the download file deletes and you get that space back

So this fixed the problem of not having enough space, but now each time that I try to install the game after downloading it, it gets to 84% and the data becomes corrupted and I have to delete it/restart. This has happened 3 times now, and its starting to annoy me..anyway to fix it from happening? And each of the corrupted data files say they are 0KB of space, but will not delete in any amount of time..
