    This is happening to me as well! With two different versions of ratchet and clank as I returned the game thinking it might be a bad disk or something... any ideas guys?

    My ps3 is saving other things fine, and is literally empty (apart from 2 old psone games and fallout3 save file.... NOT 80g)

    I'm having the same problem with Ratchet and Clank. The message that pops up says that my HDD is full. I literally just took my PS3 out of the box. I haven't downloaded anything from the network. Ratchet and Clank is the first game I inserted. I'm really, really hoping that this isn't a problem with the console. If I find out anything, I'll post again.

Hi! I just read an article that said some copies of Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction has a glitch. You actually have too much free space on your drive, as strange as that may sound. The glitch causes the disc to read the HDD as full when there is a certain amount of free space on it. Per the article:

"We recently discovered a bug on the US version of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction that some of you may encounter the first time you boot the game," said Insomniac Games community manager James Stevenson to Shacknews. "With specific amounts of free space on your drive, you may see a screen that tells you [you] have insufficient space to create game data even though there is plenty of free space on your drive. When this occurs, either delete or add about 500MB of data to your hard drive and the problem will go away," Stevenson said.

So play a few other games, download some games from the network or some music from CDs. A pain, yes, but it's better than your system being screwed.

We have just purchased ratchet and clank - tools of destruction. It is telling us that our HDD has insufficient space and we need 419mb to install it. We have a 160gb PS3 and according to system...


HI there. This is a PS3 bug and the only solution available was to format the PS3.

So i would recommend you to back up your save files and then go to system settings and restore hard disk to default.

Once done, update your PS3 to the latest firmware, return your save files and then try to install Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

Insufficient HDD space to play a game on a brand new ps3


This is a common problem (bug) with this game. Basically you have to delete something, anything, off your harddrive. If you have nothing on then download a demo or something then delete it. This should fool yr ps3 into releasing the space you need to play r&c.

Just got an 80gb ps3 and put a game in ratchet and clank tools of destruction and it says hdd needs 419 mb but there is nothing on the memory how can i fix this problem


If you just bought this unit, hopefully you are not married to anything on the HDD (if there is anything on it). Try this first.

Go to Settings
System Setting
Format Utility
And quick format your HDD.
I hope this gives you somewhere to start.

Brand new PS3 80GB - says I don't have enough HDD space!!!


this is a known big in the game , i listed the report below

We have identified a data loading issue with PS3 and Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, which may affect users who boot the game up for the first time.

During the pre-game set-up procedure, game data is automatically saved to the PS3 HDD. It has been found that, on occasion, this data fails to copy to the HDD, with an on-scree message claiming that there is insufficient space to do so - despite the fact that there is in fact enough free space on the drive.

ACTION: For every 4GB of HDD space, there is a 540MB range that will cause the game to display a message indicating that there is insufficient space to create game data. This message will therefore occur when the following amount of free space is on the HDD:

- 4010-4550MB;
- 8010-8550MB;
- 12010-12550MB;
- at every subsequent 4GB interval (i.e 16010-16550MB, etc)

If the PS3 HDD is within any of these ranges when booting without game data created, this message will appear. After game data is created, this will never appear, so if a user doesnt encounter it at first, they never will. Any users who do receive this message will need to either delete data from or save data to the HDD, so that the amount of free space no longer lies within the range detailed above
