When downloading Rainbow Six: Siege on Steam, it gives me the error "Not enough disk space..."
I tried reinstalling again, but when it reaches 90%, it shows me that error message again, even though I have 120GB free space on my disk drive.

PS : when right-clicking on the game library, and then going to Properties/Browse local files, it redirects me to the the Rainbow Six: Siege game directory, which is empty. If I search the location of the downloaded files during the download, I find that all the downloaded files go to Program Files (86x)/Steam/SteamApps/Downloading

I have already tried:

  • Verifying Integrity of game files;
  • clearing the download cache;
  • repairing the directory folder;
  • and reinstalling steam.

What could be the cause for this?

  • Do you have a different drive you could try installing it on?

  • @Nassir When you say "More than 30GB free" in your question, it suggests you don't have much more than 30GB. 32-35GB maybe. If you actually have 120GB free (per comments on the answer, below), this will clearly impact the quality of answers you receive. Please update your question with as many details as you can about what you've already done. Be as specific as you can, so we don't waste your time suggesting things you've already checked/tried.

    You need to show a screenshot of how you determine you have 120 GB free.

You have to delete the Download directory in Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps, then go to settings in Steam, and repair your download directory.
Restart steam and restart the download, so you have to wait until it finishes, and it will work.

    I edited in an image of the relevant Steam settings for easier navigation.

  • The pictures show how to add a new Steam Library Folder, not how to clear and repair your download cache
