PSN+ storage upload error messages - says full when not

10 Replies 210 Views Created 30-04-2012

Hey all,

 

For several months now, when I fire up my PS3, it tells me that not everything was copied to the cloud storage as online storage is full.

 

However, when I check my storage online, it's only showing about 85MB full (of 150MB).

 

Does anyone know why this might be happening?

 

Thanks in advance.

do you have an auto save upload set-up to do it overnight? it might be trying every save you have and therefore errors as it can't fit them all in (and this cancels it all rather than uploading what it can). check for any rather large saves (i think mafia 2 is a massive file size on mine!) to see if it'll go over the limit.

purely guessing though, not come across that issue personally.

Try deleting a save from it too, and manually uploading a copy of each one you want to reserve it a space. Then it might work :smileyhappy:

I just hate how it's so slow when deleting! D:

depending on how many games u have set to auto upload then it wont copy the data over if its going to go over the limit

Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase

It would be helpful if it told you the largest file that couldn't be copied so you can stop that game auto-uploading.

Thanks for the responses so far.

 

Is there an easy way of looking at all of my individual game saves and find out which of them are auto-uploading, so I can get to the bottom of this?

 

There's no way I've got 150MB worth of save game data scheduled to be uploaded.

Easy, no. You can look at each individual game, press triangle and 'Saved Data Auto-Upload' - On/Off.

Disc games would need to be loaded though.

It's pretty inconvenient I'm afraid. But manually checking each one is necessary to find it :smileysad:

Sorry! D:

It would help if there was a sort option based on file size. If you could easily see the largest saves you would only have to check the 'Upload' status for those.

I had this problem today and found it was because almost at the bottom of my game saves there was some corupted data. Once I deleted this it was all good. Hope this helps
