Players that own a PS4 for some time will tell you that 500GB console hard drive doesn’t have enough storage that you think. Smaller indie games mostly consume few gigabytes. Some might demand for more capacity. You can overcome that using an external hard drive. You might need to remove old games every time to create more space.
Don’t bother too much. You can always reinstall any deleted game, without losing any saved progress. Below, you will learn how you can implement that effectively.
Deleting games in your PlayStation Library:
Step 1: Navigate to the game icon you want to delete. It can be either in the start menu or in your library.
Step 2: Highlight the icon. Click the options button using your controller. When you do that, your screen will display a menu.
Step 3: Scroll to Delete and confirm your preferred selection by clicking OK.
Deleting from System Storage:
You want to have more spaces; you should consider using this option. You can find that on the system storage menu. The menu lists games according to their sizes. This makes it easy to identify the game that consumes more space.
- Go to “settings” on your preferred home screen.
- Select storage only.
- Select extended storage if you connected an external hard drive. If you didn’t, click system storage.
- Select applications. Then press options and chose delete.
- You can check more boxes to remove any game you like using this way.
- Confirm the selection by clicking on OK.
Reinstalling those deleted games:
Step 1: Go to the library shown on your home default screen, then scroll down to purchased. If you need any particular game, find it by selecting the yellow plus icon.
Step 2: You will see a downward arrow which indicates games that you can re-download. These are ones that are in your hard drive.
Step 3: Press X on your controller to reinstall. Click download to begin its process.
Deleting and reinstalling any disc-based game:
You can perform the same step for this particular one. When your PS4 finds a game disc, the main data will begin installing. Make sure you eject your game disc before you delete the game.
If you want to play it again, just insert back the disk to reinstall it.
You must be aware that all those steps are not required when you try to use a walking war robots hack that works. So, it is mainly for PlayStation 4 and not for such.
