Cannot save. Must delete files

★★★★ Novice

Just today, my son began getting the message below. It does not happen when using my profile. I deleted old files and some applications, but the error persists. How can I fix this? I have over 300GB of free space left on the system.

 

Cannot save. To save your progress in the current application, you must delete another application or video clip that is larger than 3.15 MB on the system storage. If you delete multiple applications or video clips, the total size you have to delete might be larger than 3.15 MB. To delete other applications without closing the current application, select [Go to [System Storage]].

Hey @rlgau75

 

Are you experiencing this on an Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC?

Even though this is for Mass Effect just replace that game with Madden 19 in the steps.

This could be related to the amount of clips you've saved on your storage too.
