Fix 1. Make Sure Enough Disk Space for the Game
Like many other video games, Detroit Become Human requires your PC to have enough disk space. It requires at least 50 GB of available space to install on Windows 10/11 or more while playing the game. So, it’s important to ensure enough space for the game.
How to create enough disk space for the game? Most of us usually have 2 main options: the first is to free up disk space, and the other is to upgrade to a larger HDD/SSD. You can free up disk space by deleting unnecessary files, uninstalling programs, running disk cleanup, etc.
However, if your PC has a small size of hard drive installed, upgrading to a larger HDD/SSD should be a better choice. How to upgrade a hard drive without reinstalling OS? MiniTool Partition Wizard is such a tool that can migrate OS and even copy the whole system disk without reinstalling OS.

Step 1. Launch the MiniTool software to enter its main interface and select Migrate OS to SSD/HD Wizard from the left pane.
Step 2. Select Option B to copy the system-required partitions only, and click on Next. You can select Option A if you want to copy all partitions on the system disk to the new hard drive.
Step 3. Select the target disk you want to migrate OS to and click Next. Then click on Yes to confirm this operation.
Step 4. Select a copy option based on your needs and click on Next to continue.
Step 5. Read the information and click the Finish button in the next window. Finally, click on Apply to execute the pending operations.
