If you hadn’t noticed, Half-Life 2 : Episode Two has just arrived. I’ve been waiting for this since Episode One (as have many thousands of gamers, I’m sure), and what happens when I want to finally buy it on Steam? Turns out I had stupidly installed Steam in the default location, and my C: disk partition has pretty much no space left, so I can’t download anything there. I have more free space on another disk, so I decided to move the Steam installation to another partition. Luckily this can be done without reinstalling it.
To move Steam to another location, first exit Steam and then move the entire Steam folder (it was “C:\Program Files\Steam” in my case) to the destination folder. Delete the “ClientRegistry.blob” file found in the Steam folder and run Steam from the new location. Steam will reconstruct the deleted file and everuthing should be OK.
I hope this is helpful to the HL2 fans out there ðRelated posts :
