Wow, I thought it was bad I had to make an additional 70 GB of space to download a 9 GB patch on release day, even though I had the game preinstalled 2 days before release. It looked like it didn't recognize I had it installed. So in the end I needed 140 GB of space on my drive to install a game that takes up 64 GB on my disk currently.
But this... this is even worse.
It's terrible. Like I'm stuck forever if I dont install the game on a HDD or bigger size SSD (that I don't have, my system SSD is 256gb but kinda full).
This guy on Reddit has a solution but I'm not willing to do this stuff just to update the game. CDPR, just fix it FFS.
1- I moved the entire installation to a disk that had 336gb of free space. Which has the letter M.
2- I changed the letter to the M disk with the letter to which I had dedicated the SSD disk which is the letter G. So the 336gb disk becomes disk G, the SSD a random letter, so much is it temporary.
3- I ran the 1.05 update which was successful. (now she has the fucking space required)
¹Wait for all the read / write operations on the mechanical hard disk, have a coffee, smoke a cigarette, have a fuck, shave your beard etc ... when the gravity from the top of the 104gb check has flanked your kidneys, take the stick and go check if he's done.
4- I reassigned the correct letters the 336gb disk containing the updated CyberPunk2077 re-became M and the SSD re-became G
5- I moved the CyberPunk2077 folder from disk M to disk G (SSD) *¹
6- I launched the game and now I have version 1.05.
7-optional: If after updating to version 1.05 you do not notice significant improvements in the game. Uninstall it and wait for March / April 2021 when maybe they fixed it.
* I could have done it via Regedit, but I preferred it that way.
** Fuck CDPR, with this latest game it seems that stupidity has hit them hard and they are no longer able to reason with common sense.
