Cyberpunk 2077’s launch was huge but also infamous for its bugs and glitches. The state of the game on consoles was pretty bad, especially the PS4 and Xbox One versions. With subsequent patches, CDPR has fixed the game and its glitches on all platforms, and more is coming with Cyberpunk 2077 update 2.0. However, some errors and issues still persist for the PC players like the Unsupported Filesystem error. In this Cyberpunk 2077 guide, I will list fixes that will help PC players resolve the Unsupported Filesystem error.

Cyberpunk 2077 Unsupported Filesystem Fixes That’ll Help

There are multiple reasons for the Cyberpunk 2077 Unsupported Filesystem error like not enough space is available on the drive, the format of the drive is wrong, and more. The following are the fixes that will help players resolve the Unsupported Filesystem error.

Reinstall Game

If you are experiencing the Unsupported Filesystem error while downloading an update for CP2077, then the easy solution is to uninstall the game and reinstall it. Right-click Cyberpubk 2077 in Steam library > Manage > Uninstall. After that, download and install the game again and the Unsupported Filesystem error is now fixed.


Free Up Storage

If you are experiencing the Unsupported Filesystem error while updating the game, the reason is that you don’t have enough free space on your drive. At least 15-20% storage should be free on your drive and if your drive is 90% full, you’ll experience the error. Free up space in your drive and start the download again, the Unsupported Filesystem error is fixed.

Format Drive

If the above fixes didn’t work for you then the reason for the Unsupported Filesystem error is simple, the drive where you are downloading Cyberpunk 2077 or the update is FAT32 filesystem. Players can fix this by formatting the drive to the NTFS filesystem FAT32 is a limited filesystem in regards that it can’t store any file larger than 4 GB. This is the reason why you are experiencing the Unsupported Filesystem error.

First, back up the data where Cyberpunk 2077 is installed. Right-click the drive > Format > a small window will open with some options > select NTFS under filesystem > check the Quick format option and click on Start. After that, install Cyberpubk 2077 and you won’t experience the Unsupported Filesystem error.

Right-click the drive and select Format.
Select the highlighted options and click on Start.
