Disk Write Error

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I've tried to play the game now for 2 days but couldnt because the game needed to update. 
So then i tried to update it but got error message "Disk Write Error" 

PrintScr: http://forumbilder.se/FBCGU/namnlsds
 

I have plenty of space on the computer.
I have verified the gamecache. 
Uninstalled Squad and tried to install it over again (Did not work, still got error message "Disk Write Error") 
I've re-installed steam and dont know what to do next.
 

Has anybody experienced this?  

So goddamn frustrating!

Hello and welcome to Squad @mangaz,

odd. Haven't seen that issue with Squad before.

 

try this:
Exit Steam

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common

If there is a file with the name of the game, delete it.

Start Steam

 

If you still have the issue, I'd recommend testing on another hard drive. But you can also try installing Steam in another folder such as C:\Steam\.

Run Steam as admin and actually make sure you're installing to a disk with enough space on it. Perhaps your SSD is full?

you can also navigate to you steam folder and go into the "Steamapps" folder then look for appmanifest_393380.acf and delete it, it may be corrupt.
then close steam entirely, reboot your pc, and try and update squad now.

In the past there was a cmd command to Check the hdd/ssd for errors. It was chkdsk, but i dont know if this still useable. Also your Windows settings for virtual memory could be a problem.

Don't confuse it's purpose, it is NOT for checking the drive for errors, but ONLY the drive's partition table, which is NOT the same.

If you really want to check your drive for errors, you will have to do a SMART analysis, which I would recommend before running chkdsk (in his case).
