It appears, that I have fixed the problem. I do not know exactly exactly how. But I unmounted Steam (which included already set up games - that was waste of 7 great hours...), and also installed it on C drive rather. And currently there are no trouble with install games 2 various areas.It appears, that Steam do not prefer if one install games on two various drives at the very same time (after I reset up Steam, I only install games at one drive at the time, which I don"t think around prior to the reinstallation).
I had actually this very same error coming up when I tried installing a brand-new game I"d simply bought and directed it to my D: drive, as my C drive didn"t have room for the brand-new game. It maintained giving me the error until I noticed that Steam was in the process of downloading and install updays to some various other games I already had installed.I simply waited for it to finish that process and also then it was able to create the new library and start downloading/installing the brand-new game.
I put all my steam games on my computer systems major drive onto the destination drive and also then it functioned. It appears vapor doesn"t prefer to have libraries on two separate drives.

while this is an old conversation, i had this issue myself (heavy steam set up in D drive) - still not realised just how to force a heavy steam library sub-folder right into my routine papers folder, yet.. i produced a steam library sub-folder directly into the root (C:SteamLibrary).. something weird going on through the folder settings being write safeguarded - hope this could brighten someones day later on though

I really really would certainly prefer to recognize why having various other games in "Updating" state has anypoint to perform via this ? What is the developer reasoning below ? It appears dubious at finest. I have a entirety lot of Games in Updating state, and am just trying to obtain a very huge game ( i hate those ) to occupational aobtain that i previously relocated to a different partition. It"s reportedly not possible until i ran ALL of the updates ? This is silly, sorry.
