    Go into uplay and select the game, and select the option to verify files.

    Why? Because with my own eyes yesterday I saw the automatic update of this game run me out of disk space, and it left behind a 144GB far cry 6 folder. That is roughly twice the size I expect that folder to be.

    My theory is that the game didn't patch, but installed a 2nd new copy..... and since my system didn't have that much free (it should've detected and not tried to update) it ran out of space during the install of the 2nd copy, it is anyone's guess regarding the integrity of the install due to a half arsed update/install.

    I played last night, and had no issues, but that could just be dumb luck -- that the areas I happened to play in had the right files/versions.

    Today, I did the "verify files" thing and it fixed it and the folder size is back to ~77GB.

    There is something awry with the update process, that it tries to chew so much space.

    My suggestion to Ubisoft would be to have the team look at the update process and the disk space it wants to consume, put in checks to ensure that space is available, end then update. And of course, if during the update it does run out of space, handle that by rolling it back to the original files and sizes. Not just leave that disk space chewed up.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @tcarlisle2012 confirmed from my side. I was literally watching this yeasterday during the update.
    Validating space was quite long and during that period the SSD was literraly eaten up...
    More over you may observe that during update in the Ubi Connect you`ll see below update icon an icon to select installed game folder- that made me worried as basically app is loosing the already installed folder only when you click update...So maybe dev team can have a better look on what is actually the issue.
