    [RESOLVED] Game Locks saving Ghost

    Hello,

    Recently I have the issue where the game locks as it exits any track where I set a new personal best time. I get the following message...

    "Failed to save ghost data, the total save data size used by the application has exceeded the maximum allowed size of 1GB. Do you want to retry the save"

    It shows YES/NO but is locked up.

    I have a PS4 Pro and there is plenty of free space on the HDD. I also can't find anywhere where I can adjust any save data sizes.

    How many saved replays and such do you have? I believe there is a limit on how much a single game can store.

    OK.. I went back and dug through the storage settings in the PS4. You appear to be right. Cars2 was close to 1Gb in saved "data". Within that data are all the ghosts, career, profile and setup saves.. Each file approx 4.2mb.

    All adds up. I deleted about 60 "ghost saves". And now it appears to be working.

    The question now is, if i delete all the PRevious career and profile files -- but keep the latest of each, will i lose anything??
