So why does the update download to C: when default steamlibrary is on another drive

Recommended Posts

I can't update the game since my 80gb ssd gets full before the update is downloaded. This has never happened with any other game.

Every steam game downloads to wherever your steam install location is and then moves the files to the game location after.
the default is \steamapps\downloading
If you are savvy with computers look up how to create a symbolic link,
basically you can move the downloading folder to whatever drive you want and then create a symbolic link so steam thinks its still on C but its actually just a shortcut to wherever you moved it.
