    Game updates to internal storage failing due to 'lack of storage' despite 100x that being...


    Games will fail to update and say they require more room - but it's always a very small amount of room...4 MB, 29 MB, 8 MB and the internal drive has 109 GB free. I tried deleting saved games from the drive. Cleared unnecessary files from past game installs. Deleted entire games.

    It still fails with the same space requirement listed. The only thing that works is deleting the entire install and reinstalling the game again.

    Reported it, but is anyone else having this issue?

    Xbox 360 corrupted internal memory unit

    Hi Diego,

    There is no error message (except when I try to download an update that I suspect is a consequence of this issue). Basically, when I go to the Storage menu, and go down to the Internal Storage, it says there are only 450 MB free of the 3 GB capacity (which
    is normal - it was like that previously). However, when I click on Internal Storage, all the section say that 0.0 KB are being used, as if there was absolutely nothing in this storage space.

    The internal storage is where my profile (console-only) and all my game files are stored. Hence, I cannot access them as I believe the files in the internal storage have been corrupted. I believe the update and subsequent error message when I try to do the
    update come from all the previous updates having been corrupted from the internal storage.

    I was wondering if this is a problem that has been encountered before and if there is any known solution to recover my game files.

    Thank you,

    Sebastien

    Xbox One Extender Drivers for Windows 7 Home PC Network

    No they don't. Despite being marketed as a multimedia hub, the One lacks even the basic functionality to makes this a true statement. No true streaming from the console and no USB storage support. I'm really bummed I bought this thing.

    This happened to me about 1 month ago. I would like to know what's the cause of this error. My internal storage was unformatted before I couldn't download, so I think it was the unformatted internal storage that causes the problem. I recommend watching,
    How to Fix "System Update Failed" - Any Status Code (Xbox 360) by MrMario2011. It didn't work for me because I think it was my unformatted internal storage. Check the video out on Youtube.

    Using external drive in gamepass

    Can you explain if you are on pc or xbox ? if Xbox which folder you are referring to, are you saying that downloads from xbox are going directly to your internal storage ? despite an external drive being chosen ?

    Hard drive and update issue

    As Irixion says getting another storage device isn't going to help sorry. The update always installs to the primary storage device be that internal memory unit or hard drive and as that has failed and cannot be replaced by yourself I'm afraid you can't update
    the xbox until you get the hardware fault fixed.
