It’s hard to break the code because PS4 doesn’t reveal any further details. You tried all possible solutions but nothing seems to work.
If this is your current situation, this guide is mainly for you. Here I have written a step by step guide to solve Error CE-35694-7 on PS4.
But, before starting the troubleshooting you have to understand the error CE-35694-7 and its causes.
PS4 Error CE-35694-7: Explanation and Its Causes
PS4 Error CE-35694-7 is commonly known as Low Disk Space Error on PS4 or Not Enough Free Space Error on PS4.
Whenever you attempt to install a brand-new game on your PS4, the very first thing that PS4 OS does is to look out for the free space on your PS4 Hard Disk Drive.
If there is a lack of available storage (as required for game installation) on your PS4 hard drive, Error CE-35694-7 will pop up on the screen. Otherwise, the game will be installed without having any such errors.
With recent updates by Sony, you may have noticed that error keeps popping out even if you got more space then the needed for game installation.
Sony has tweaked its system to watch out for 2X storage required for the game installation. Sony has taken this step to hold some space for future updates and patches.

1. Clean Up PS4 HDD:
PS4 games are generally compressed so data transfer can be done quickly. And during the installation process, these files get extracted that results in more space occupation.
The quick and most common solution to this problem is to free up some space from your PS4 hard drive. Most of the time this will solve the problem.
To be on the safer side you always need follow a simple rule of clearing up the double space as the required by game. For example, if your game asks for 50 GB of storage you at least need 100 GB of storage.
After successfully deleting the unwanted data from your PS4 it is desirable to switch off your PS4 and restart it after a few seconds. What restarting will do is, it will clear the cache from PS4 Consoles memory and most of the times it will solve the problem.
But in some exceptional cases, you still face the same issue. In such exceptional case, you can follow the steps from below.
2. Rebuild Your PS4 Database:
If error CE-35694-7 still remains, then there is a chance that your PS4 firmware is the main culprit.
To resolve the firmware issue you are required to rebuild your database. You can follow these steps to rebuild your database on PS4 Console.
- Turn off your PS4 Console then connect your controller using the USB cable.
- Now press and hold the Power Button until you hear 2 beep sound.
- Release Power Button then press the PS button on the controller.
- Now access Safe Mode and select Rebuild Database option.
- The message will appear on your screen: The database will be rebuilt, it might take a few hours to rebuild the database.

3. Upgrade PS4 Hard Disk Drive:
If your PS4 Hard Drive Drive got low storage capacity, you need to delete older games and data before the installation of a new game.
However, there may be some occasions when you don’t want to delete the data. Only just because of low storage capacity you have to make a compromise and delete your game data.
The final solution to this problem is to enhance your PS4 Hard Disk Drive storage capacity.
So in that position, I advise you to get an HDD of higher storage capacity. For most of the enthusiastic gamers, 1 TB Hard Disk Drive is enough. But if you want to hold more games at a time and got enough money you can also go with 2 TB Hard Drive.
For better speed and performance you can also go with SSD storage. SSD (Solid State Drives ) are more reliable and faster as compared to HDD.
