I have an external hardrive and it is formatted as extra storage on my PS4. I uploaded RDR2 on the hardrive and the PS4 won't let me play it because apparently there isn't enough storage. Bear in mind that my system storage is nearly full. Please help.

Are you using more than 1 external hard drive?

Have u re-formated the HDD for the PS4 & is it showing on system storage?

Is it for a game update, PS4 requires updates to be saved on the same drive as the game.

Ive had it before where it says it cant read my external drive & turning the console on/off fixes it, very annoying but only happens to my console on rare occasions.

I copied everything into my external hardrive and it's fine now.
