Steam Disk Write Error - Help

Recommended Posts

So I was having this issue recently when I was playing Squad the very next day after installing. It would give me a "Disk Write Error" once the updating finished making me unable to play it.

 

I don't know much about the error so I just posted it.

The disk write error is probably due to some bad sectors on your hard drive and/or a failing hard drive. Defrag your drive with windows defrag (if your running windows), not the steam cache defrag. This should fix any (fixable) disk issues, make sure you select to have it check for and fix any problems it finds. Then redownload your games and verify cache on them right away. Hope this helps!

If that's the case then maybe you can try by checking your Steam Settings and follow the steps below: 

 

1. Open Steam Client & navigate to Downloads and go to Download Region.
2. Choose any Download region other than the one & restart the client. 

 

That would probably fix it. However, if you're still facing the error, then maybe you can try this steam disk write error fix
