I want to ask about the minimum storage space.

I compressed the game with a size of 76.6 GB and tried to install it with 76.7 GB of storage, an error occurred because the storage did not fit

what is the minimum storage that must be provided before starting the install?

It depends on the compression methods used.
In some cases even triple the space.

If using srep for example it will generate temporary files so I recommend in most cases: original size * 2.5

I want to provide minimum storage information to my installer.. But if I put 2.5X of the original size it's too big..

Is there a way to know exactly how much storage is needed before installing?

I think I made a little confusion.
The 2.5x answer would be recommended space for compression.

I don't know if there is a way to get this size correctly, as it depends on many factors, such as the method used, whether or not you used the SPLIT mode, etc.
Example: Assuming you compress a game using SPLIT mode and after compressing get 76 GB using BD50.
To install it will need 76 GB just for merging Data##.bin and this file will be deleted only after the game installation is finished.

Maybe someone else can tell you better, but I think the best way would be to do a test install and periodically check the size of the {app} folder to see which size is bigger. Maybe I can include this in the test installation of the DSG in the future.

EDIT:

I did some tests here and the required size was the same as the size before compression.
I compressed the SCARLET NEXUS game to 19.1 GB (20,581,622,161 bytes) with method below and the required size was the same size (increasing only uninstall files).
Code:
xtool:c32mb:d1:mreflate:mscarletnexus+srep_new:1+4x4:b64mb:lzma:ultra:64m:bt4:fb273:lc8:mc1000000
However, the size of the uninstall files must be considered, which depending on the installer can be quite large.
If using the CIU-based installer, the size of Setup.exe+Setup.bin (if exists) must be increased to the required size.
If the compression uses the DSG split mode read the previous information above.

Is there a possibility to provide version 2.0.0.9? After updating to v2.0.1.0 I have problems compiling certain files that were not there before (so I just want to test if the problem is really due to the new version).

hello, a strange thing just happened. I launched DSP gui 2.0.1.0 in normal mode and I leave it in a corner. the time to download a game, install it, switch a few languages ​​and do something else 58 minutes have passed and all of a sudden a DSP window opens alone with the message "out of range" I can't not even click OK or close the application, I have to use the task manager.

disregard my message, it's back to normal after restarting the pc.

Smile DiskSpan GUI to v2.0.1.1

Updated DiskSpan GUI to v2.0.1.1 in the first post.
Special thanks to @KaktoR for all the work testing compressions and creating the DiskSpan GUI database settings.
READ: I ask everyone who uses DiskSpan GUI when using a plugin to download the plugin in DEVELOPER mode and share after downloading, this way the plugin will already be in the DiskSpan GUI folder avoiding version incompatibility errors if the plugin is updated in the future.
Code:
Changes:
- Updated 7-Zip compressor from v21.07 to v22.00 (2022-06-15).  
- Updated XTool precompressor from v0.5.3 to v0.6.0
  >> XTool has added support to flac, packjpg, brunsli, jojpeg codecs.
- Updated DiskSpan GUI database to version 1.0.4.9 (Thanks to KaktoR).
- Added support to new insttaller "OTHER", but CIU doesn't support this new type yet (wait).
- Added support to new installer type "OTHER" and recreated the way checkboxes referring to installer types.
  >> Now the default item is represented as checked and the other items as grayed.
  >> You can change the default item by holding the keyboard CTRL key when check a checkbox.
  >> The installer C.I.U. doesn't support "OTHER" installer type yet (wait new C.I.U. version). 
- Added new checkbox in unpacker tab in the TOOLS to monitor disk size required for installation
  >> This unpack is slow because it checks destination folder size every 100 milliseconds.
- Added support that allows using space in the "Destination media label" settings.
  >> To use space is necessary to include the character "|" at the end of the line like: "DVD |"

I don't know if this is really the problem, but the same thing happens here.
I checked the links and everything is ok.
Maybe google drive limits a number of files per hour, so try to download items that failed some time later.
Here it worked after waiting a while.

Google Drive does has a limit on files which are excessively downloaded within a period of time.
