Error 104

Hello,

After every patch I get this error, not enough space, even though I have nearly 50gb free space. Patch sizes are usually only 50-100 MB in size, and when it goes to "Apply" the patch its usually 10-20 gb, which is still way less than my total overhead. The only workaround I know is to reinstall ESO from scratch as my drives do not have a large enough amount of free space?

I tried moving to my HDD and patching it there, with over 80 gb of free space, and it still gave the "not enough space" error. I have to do this every single time I patch. It's absolutely frustrating... Why does it take OVER 160 gb to patch a simple 50-100 mb patch????

    Not running through steam, just a normal install from the launcher. Tried downloading latest launcher and didn't help either. It's been like this for about 8 months now every single patch except maybe 2 require a full reinstall...

    Frequently, Error 104 is due to an anti-virus program blocking the patch. In some circumstances, the exception will need to be removed and re-added back as an exception to your antivirus program.

    The application files that may require exceptions are:
    • Bethesda.net_launcher: C:\Program Files (x86)\ZenimaxOnline\Launcher
    • ESO.exe: C:\Program Files (x86)\ZenimaxOnline\The Elder Scrolls Online\game\client\eso.exe
    • ESO64.exe: C:\Program Files (x86)\Zenimax Online\The Elder Scrolls Online\game\client\eso64.exe
    • Steam.exe: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steam.exe

    Some antivirus programs require entire folders to be selected instead of a single file.When this is the case, the file paths below are what players should use. If required by the anti-virus program, include all subfolders since every file is critical to run the game.
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Zenimax Online\The Elder Scrolls Online\
    • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\

    There are some additional troubleshooting steps for Error 104 in the thread below.
