There is a glitch with Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction, where it will tell you that there is not enough space on the HDD to install the "Game Data", whether there is or there isn't. The way to fix this, is to add or remove the 419 MB required to install the "Game Data". An easy solution is to load up the Playstation store, and download the Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction demo. Install the "Game Data" after the demo is finished installing, then delete the demo. If you are without internet access on your PS3, take another "Game Data" from another game, and delete that. When you play the game with the deleted "Game Data", it will simply re-install the "Game Data" back on the system.

Do you have videos, pictures and music on there?

What games do you have on there? Some games require an installation which can hog up a LOT of space. If you need to delete stuff press triangle on the item and select delete. Are you sure you have an 80gb and not a 20gb?

Take a look at this thread

Someone has a similar problem, apparently it is a glitch with R&C.

Have a good look through your PS3.
You might have an operating system, themes, PS2/1 saves.
Try going into your system information, just to be certain that you got an 80 gig.
Maybe they sold you a 20gig in the box instead?

If you want to clear up space on your PS3 HDD what I did is move all my music, photos, and videos onto a SD Memory Stick and all of my old PS3 game data onto a seperate SD Memory Stick it works for me!

save all your game data on a flash drive and if you have some pics, music or videos on your ps3 that you want save them to you flash drive also then go to setting on the ps3 and reformat it what this means it deleates everything ever saved to the HDD i hope i helped you out
