xfx r7800 error 176

I tried to install the AMD driver Adrenalin 2020 Edition version 20.4.2, but it fails everytime because of the error 176, stating that i don't have enough disk space for the installation.
However, in the online description for this error it's stated that the software needs roughly 3gb, which i have on 2 different harddrives, of which i both tried to install it on. 
I did a full cleanup with the AMDCleanUpUtility and started my pc several times, nothing of that helped. 
I hope anyone has a solution to this, thank you in advance.

Use this basic method and see if it fixes your error:

Uninstall the current AMD Driver using DDU as per this method:

It could be due to a corrupted AMD Driver installation.

Download free program DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller). Run it in Safe mode with the internet disconnected.

You can also run it in Windows Desktop but then you would need to Reboot the computer for DDU to finish erasing all of  the AMD Driver traces from your computer.

 Once it finishes uninstalling the current AMD Driver in Safe mode and boots back to Windows Desktop, still with the Internet disconnected, delete the AMD Installation folder C:\AMD if it was created before.

Now install the full AMD Drive package you downloaded manually from AMD Download page. Not the express package. Run the package and if it installs correctly again delete C:\AMD folder and reconnect the internet.

This should prevent any conflict when installing the new version from the previous version.

By the way, C:\AMD is always created whenever you run the AMD Driver package
