  6. Set a bandwidth limit

Fix 1: Uncheck bonus content under DLC

If your Cyberpunk download is stuck on 57.4 GB, it probably is extracting the game files. This happens with preloaded games on Steam. So you just need a little more patience and you’ll be in. However, if you can’t wait for any longer, disabling the DLC content download may help you.

1) Under the LIBRARY tab, navigate to your game Cyberpunk 2077. Right-click it and select Properties.

Once done, you should be able to fix the game stuck at 57.4/64 GB issue. If this didn’t work for you, proceed to the next fix.


Fix 2: Change Steam download server

When there are so many players downloading the game, servers might be overloaded. Changing Steam download server can help you fix it. Here are the steps you can take:

1) From your Steam Client, open the Settings panel by selecting Steam > Settings from the top left client menu.

2) In the Settings panel, select the Downloads tab. Then in the Download Region section, choose another download region in the drop-down menu. According to the tests, Asian servers can substantially increase your download speed. It’s probably because there’s less traffic congestion.

You can also check Steam Download Stats to avoid the high traffic.

Fix 3: Set Steam’s priority to High

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to open Task Manager.

2) Under the Processes tab, locate Steam Client Bootstrapper. Right-click it and select Go to details.
