The issue is not yet resolved, but Bungie looks to be working on fixing the problem. 18GB is a pretty huge size and after downloading it, a re-download of the entire patch is not a good thing. The patch download will take relatively long time on a slow internet connection. Also it is found that some people are reporting the patch version is 2.0.1 instead of 1.17. You can check out the link below and read the official discussion.

  • If you are encountering a ‘corrupted data’ error message, you may want to stop your download, clear your console cache, and then restart the download.
  • Some players are reporting that while the download says it’s a full 18 GB, it actually only downloading today’s small patch. This is the expected behavior for PlayStation 4 downloads. However, we are still investigating the reports from some players that they are being required to re-download the full 18 GB.
