SteamTool Library Manager 1.1
Have you run out of space to install games within Steam? Want to install some of the games in your Steam Library to another hard drive or solid-state drive?
With SteamTool, you can install the games in your Steam Library across more than one hard drive. Games on the second hard drive will continue to play, download and update as normal, since Steam is still able to access them using their original folder names.
How to Get Started
- Create an empty folder on the additional drive that will have games installed on it.
- Open SteamTool, and select the folder that you just created.
- SteamTool is now ready for you to transfer games. From now on, all you have to do is:
- Choose a game from the list and click 'Move to Storage' or 'Move to Steam'.
- SteamTool makes use of NTFS Junctions. Steam will need to be installed on an NTFS partition for SteamTool to work.
- Some programs might display incorrect results when accessing your Steam folder, if they follow the same links that Steam uses to access games on the second drive. (i.e wrong number of files in a folder)
- You should read this guide explaining how to back up your Steam Library. No warranty is available in case of data loss, etc. Use at your own risk.
SteamTool now informs you of possible linking errors or missing games.
If there are any issues detected, SteamTool will display a new 'Messages' button.
When clicked, this will explain the source of any problems, and provide suggestions on how to fix them. This is most likely to happen when folders are moved using Windows Explorer.
- Improved the display on the 'Move to Storage' pop-up when moving a game with a long folder name.
- The number of games linked from Steam is now visible.
- Small changes and fixes to the interface
