The maps installer is incorrectly reporting available/free drive space.  All installation is to my G:\ drive, an SSD I reserved just for games, however it appears that the maps installer is only looking at my C:\ drive which did not have enough space for the full install.  The maps installer even warned that I didn't have enough room.

 

My C:\ drive is an SSD partitioned just for Windows.

May be a bit moot question:  first of all, what is installation destination? Is it somewhere on C:\ or somewhere else? Then, where installer is located? If it is in your 'Downloads' folder, and this folder is on drive C:\, then chances are, that there is no sufficient free space for installer to download necessary files and(or) unpack them.

There was plenty of space in the install directory in G:\ where the game and all associated tools are installed, but for some reason the installer program only wants to look at drive C:\ for space requirements, even though it is not even on drive C:\.

 

 

I suspect that the original installer had the same glitch and simply skipped installing the maps package.  After having downloaded and installed the separate maps package, I have gone from just a handful of maps to about 75.

 

So, problem solved:

If the normal installer tool doesn't install maps, just use the separate tool and ignore the space warnings for the wrong drive.

I think most installer related questions have been figured out here, but I'll throw this in:  even if you select another drive to put your files on, you'll need a good deal of space on your c drive temporarily, because that is where the installer will decompress the files while its working with them.

To be honest, less than 16 GByte free SSD space sounds as if someone is in dire need of a bigger SSD. Any data written to the SSD during the day will use the same free space, so all strategies at wear leveling are limited to that small amount of space. And that means that the disk will accumulate failures much faster. Ideally about a quarter or more of an SSD would usually remain unused so that the drive can use different blocks to write to as each write access damages a storage cell ever so slightly. The SSD's firmware will try to spread the damage over all the cells evenly that are marked as "free for use", but it doesn't shift all existing data around.

 

The price of SSDs has dropped substantially over the past decade, fortunately.
