:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

Every time I update in steam, the system says not enough space. I have 34 gigs of space left on my hard drive and it says not enough space and that I need 37. Essentially I need twice the size of the game in available space in order to update. I even tried uninstalling and installing again. It does the same thing.
