You may want to hold off on the update. My account just updated now most of my games are missing from my library :(

Best part of the update for me is that I now can install my most played games now on my SSD drive, or other drives instead of just your local steam folder.

if you want to do that, you need to uninstall game, then on re-install you get a prompt of which hard-drive you want steam to install it on!

awesome, would have been nice a while ago... but i learned to symbolic link, nice to have an in program option though.

i really hate the way games are advertised for space on there now. borderlands 2, 20gb, installs at i beleive less than 6gb.

its annoying how they say one thing but are another...

on that note thanks, ill probably end up getting it this sale.

If 20 GB is too much, either you need to do a bit of cleaning on your hard drive, or now's a good time to upgrade from that 32 GB hard drive.

I'm so excited reading your comment! I just ran out of space on my main drive. Already gave Big Picture a go back when Steam for Linux came out, so your comment was the real big news for me :)

Adding to this: You must goto the "Downloads + Cloud" tab in the Steam settings and add other folders/drives before having the option to choose them for install.

Somebody please make a game controller that works across all platforms. It's getting ridiculous now.

I've always used the MKLINK command to map games folders to my SSD

and the best part about MKLINK is that you can do the install on your big drive, then with a few directory renamings, just move the already installed files to your SSD.
