    Hi @Lewis Keys can you try setting the download folder and the content location folder to separate folders on your external drive and let us know if that helps?

    Also please see this article just in case: Notes on Network Drives and Disk Formats

    Same problem. Ssd has 130gb free but factory library 2 says not enough space. When i try to locate it, tells the path is invalid but it is the same path as all my installed libs. If i try to change location it gives the same invalid path message. This is a mess NI!

    I had the same problem and the solution was to put the download folder on a separate drive with plenty of space. Keep the content folder unchanged.

    (In my case, I guess the error is somewhat related with a bug so that the Komplete 14 Standard install requires the 260GB GB for complete install).

    It’s not a bug at all, if you are downloading a large installer or group of them they will need at least twice the amount of space during the install process to extract the files (which are usually compressed) and move them into place so if you are downloading onto the same drive you are installing to it will eat a lot more than the projected final amount. That’s why it’s best to setup the downloads on another drive.
