Palworld, although the game did receive a lot of positive reviews, did have its share of criticisms related to the performance and startup issues that still haunt some gamers with mid to low-end hardware. But the “Disk Full” issue Palworld has, I don’t think anyone has addressed it before, and if you are the victim of one of these, then this guide might help!
So, in this article, we will guide you on how to fix the Full Disk Issue during Updating Palworld.
How to Fix Palworld Full Disk Issue
This issue has been raised by a Steam User [hf]vaas; where he says
“My solid disks all have over 20GB and is this just a 275MB update, but for some reason it says no space!”
Palworld updates work a little differently than we would have expected. It clones the original files, patches them, and then deletes the older cloned files. I can’t even find the logic to this method. But this is how it is. But how do you fix it? There isn’t a direct fix because the game works this way, and you need at least 40GB of Free Space on your SSD. The developers already mentioned that the game will need space ranging from 15GB to 40GB. So ensure you have an additional >40GB SSD space left after installation. This also reminds you that you shouldn’t fill up your storage devices. At least 20% free storage should be left on any of the drives for them to perform optimally at their rated speeds.
However, if you are in a situation where you don’t have the space for Palworld to get updated, then we can help you get out of this mess.
- Copy the original file on an external hard drive or a different drive.
- Patch the copied cloned file.
- Verify if the cloned file works properly.
- Delete the original file.
Remember that copying is way faster than downloading a whole game, no matter how good your broadband connection is. See, downloading minor 200-300MB updates is fine, but nowadays, games come in packed files, so you must download a chunk of that 5-10GB file if some files go missing or corrupted. So, in this case, if you find the verified file works appropriately, delete the original file. If not, then re-do the process. In this way, you will not have to redownload the original files again and spend time verifying them.
You can also try.
- Deleting the Temp/Prefetch Files.
- Using 3rd Party software that can help clean your files, cookies, temp files, shortcuts, log files, etc.
- You can also use Disk Cleanup Software to clean up unwanted junk saved on your PC.
- Delete the unnecessary files from your Desktop. Remember that nowadays everything is available on the Internet for you. So make sure you delete every file you think you re-download back from the internet when you use it.
- Do not install junk gimmick software that is of little to no use.
- Completely Re-install the game if you have the option to do so.
So that was all about fixing the disk full issue in Palworld.
