Fix for "preparing to download" update.

Soul Shriven
OK I found my fix ladies and gentlemen. I had about 25 GB of space left on my hard drive. I noticed when it was trying To download the update that the amount of available space was fluctuating. Even though I had plenty of room for the patch it wouldn't let it download. I deleted some games and freed up 40 GB of space and the update started once I tried again.

So check the space of your hard drive and make sure you have more than enough room for the patch. See you out there my fellow travelers.

    Thank you, worked for me.

    I'm very disappointed with Zenimax and their service.

    Thank you again Ztemde.

    Just thought I chime in and say this isn't the issue for me I have 437GB free (2TB HDD) and it's as stuck as annoying scribble in the pavement.
