Insufficient Storage

Recommended Posts

I want to play F1 2019 but every time i start the game it tells me i got insufficient storage on my C drive (see picture)

But i've checked everything for the save and storage settings and everything should be on my D drive.

if someone knows how to solve this problem (appart from deleting stuff cuz i keep doing that and i'm done with it)

Is the box correct that you only have 1520mb of space on the C drive? I assume 'Your Documents' folder is located on this drive, which includes replay and config files for example.

You may have to look for a way to get the Your Documents folder to another drive, maybe?

as i've stated in my original post deleting or moving documents is not what i want. sure it solves the problem for some time but eventually the problem reocurs. 
i've deleted unnesesary files and moved my documents/video/pictures storage to my D drive so i cant relocate that.

that leaves me to figuring out why F1 2019 (and also 2017 and 2018) needs these 2GB every time when it starts up. i'm guessing its for temperary storage during playing the game.
and also how to change that cuz all my steam and F1 related files are in my other drives

Okay, I was just wondering if the Documents folder is in the C drive as the game requires at least 2GB of space in the 'Your Documents' folder. If it's not, then I don't know anything else.

Well, either create the space or don't play the game, you can't have both. 

Running your system drive with such little free space means you will 

a) have poor performance (either HDD or SSD, in fact wear on an SSD will increase)

b) won't be able to upgrade Windows soon either

Either way, your attitude is heading towards trouble. You need to buy more storage.

@UP100 Although not completly correct it did give me another idea. most of the time these type of files are created in the appdata folders. obviously moving or deleting this file is not a cakewalk. but i think i managed to solve so i can play it now.

@steviejay69 my C drive is a 60GB SSD so i'm not surprised its nearly full. and buy more storage???? dude i got 3 other drives with a combined cappacity of 6.5TB and got about 60% of it left.
besides what u mean my attitude is heading towards trouble. IMO you should stick to giving the necessary info in stead of judging people

How did you say it? "your attitude is heading towards trouble"?? Yeah, look in the mirror buddy. 

I know I'm almost a year late on posting this but your reply seriously ****** me off enough to make this account just to reply. Not only you're a judgmental brat, you are a SPOILED judgmental brat...! The kind of person that instead of trying to fix something, just throws it away and buys another! 


Yeah, I too have a 60GB SSD just for my Windows installation. I TOO have 3,5TB of HDD to store anything else. I'm not financially able to go buy a 500 GB SSD just because a game wants to suck 2GB out of my SSD with NO OPTION TO SELECT A DIFFERENT DRIVE! And your "dilemma"?? That " either create the space or don't play the game, you can't have both." joke? Well, I'm "having both" with LITERALLY EVERY OTHER GAME IN MY PC, except F1 games. No need to create space and, you guessed it, I'm PLAYING THE GAMES! So, if you can't actually help with something meaningful, like "you could use the xyz parameters on game start to change the default strorage folder", very politely, you can stfu! The guy came here for help and all he got was a condescending ARSE that thinks high and might of himself because daddy spoiled him too much when he was a kid (and maybe still is)!  

Anyway, I found no workaround to fix this around the internet so I guess Codemasters doesn't really care about this issue. Good thing I got this game for free so I can just ignore playing it alltogether, if I spent money on it and had to clear my SSD every time I wanted to play the game, I'd get mad!

I must say your comeback is strong. I'll hang around until next year for the response. Good to connect.
