I always just delete games when i'm finished with them, and sync my data with the online servers. I don't mind deleting stuff, since it doesn't take but a few minutes, to reinstall stuff on the PS4.

Deleting games is kinda sad, they deserve more!

Sounds like a random read Europe error.

You should probably rebuild the database, even though that happens automatically with each OS update.
Maybe that will fix the issue.

I wish I was European...

lol

 

but really you should try that and see if it has any effect.

I think the PS4 reserves "some" space for updates.

19GB seems like a random number xP

I did some search and there are people claiming to have over 80GB of dead space, looks like a random bug.

That makes no sense. I had a similarly puzzling issue about a year ago, but the game file size and HD space discrepancy wasn't as pronounced as the one you're dealing with. Hope you can get it working properly again.

Yeah, same here, first time it didn't bug me out, this time it's ridiculous.

Well, I've had it happen more than a few times when I tried install a new game or expansion to a game. I'm fairly certain that it reserves space for system updates and updates to apps/games.

Excited to hear you are getting a 4TB external. That will set you up for a long time. I have 4TB Internal SSD, and a 5GB External HDD. With 227 apps installed, I am at just short of 4TB in total between the two.

4TB SSD? That baby must have cost a fortune!

But they stay in your library, so that u can quickly redownload them. Disc based games, only take a few minutes as well. There are so many games released anymore, that i rarely have the time to revisit them anyways.

I just bought a 5TB external for the PS4 and this type of stuff is no longer a problem for me. Do yourself a favor and get something similar. So much easier.



I'm constantly having to delete stuff to make room on my PS4. I'm considering upgrading to a bigger HD.

I didn't even knew 4TB SSD where a thing, how much does it even costs?

Bought mine for $1,500 when the PS4 Pro came out. Seen it as low as $1,299.99.

They just lanuched a 4TB EVO 960 Pro for the cool price of $1,899.99.

A bit spendy, but I am trying to do my part in being an early adapter. Hope they can hit their targets, and get price down to HDD levels by 2020. SSD is supposed to fall below HDD $/TB in the early 2020's, and capacity capacity gap is supposed to start widening exponentially. 



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

Damn that's a hefty amount, but you get what you pay for. I do hope the price ends up on those levels cause I really need an SSD.

Delete system 32. That thing takes up tons of space.

Does the PS4 even have this folder?

I confess, I lied. You need to take apart your PS4 and wash it. If you don't wash your electronics, they'll start acting up.
