SSDs and Steam Library...

Ok, Im finally going to take the plunge and buy an SSD.

Obviously I wont be spending a lot on it, so its going to be a 240Gb one at best.

Is there any way of habving Steam installed on the SSD, but the games on a "normal" drive, but then move the game I want to play to the SSD when needed?

I hope that makes sense...

Re: SSDs and Steam Library...

under downloads, steam libary folders, define a new folder.


then when you install it will ask you which libary folder to use.

You can select where to install a game when installing it.

Re: SSDs and Steam Library...

This is true, I can tell it where to install it, but...

What I want is a Main Steam folder on the SSD, and a folder for games on a second HDD, then when I want to play a game move it to the SSD folder, once Im done, move it back to the HDD...
