Yeah, they were 2 seperate instances according to the Playstation. It (re)downloaded something, but it wasn’t the entire game. It somehow did read my add-ons (Hawke’s Bay + Legacy) and a trophy I just unlocked didn’t create a seperate instance in my trophy list. It added itself to the already existing trophy list.
All my progress was kept, so that’s good news. But when I went into the Hitman 2 application that I downloaded months ago, it did NOT read that I had bought the disc version. Meaning in that instance/application of Hitman 2, I could not play Miami, Himmelstein, Ghost Mode etc. So my downloaded version was 54 GBs or something while the disc version is up to 100(?) GBs. I deleted that app and will now continue on my disc version.
The one thing that does irk me, which is a very minor complaint, is that the Playstation made a seperate instance of Hitman 2 in the Capture Gallery. So when I unlock a trophy, it automatically takes a screenshot. That screenshot won’t be added to the Hitman 2 tab I already had.
