I managed to offload FS2 again from my PC for the second time! What happened was that I moved the PC to another room because I wanted to paint the study. When I fired it up in its new location clicking on steam did nothing. I went to the website and my library was missing and I found it is not visible because steam thinks steam is not installed on my PC for some reason. So I thought .... uninstall Steam and reinstall it .... no problem. Lost all my steam bought programs on that one fateful click of a button. Worse still, is that for some reason steam thinks it is installing itself onto a new PC and is putting games back onto the C drive instead of my much larger D drive. I now have 2 installations of FSW (unfortunately not this much larger sim) one on each drive. I guess what I am asking is does anyone know how to get Steam to install to a drive of choice rather than C please? I figure if I can change the steam setting then I can delete one copy and get back into re installing my FS2. I think I will super glue this PC to the floor of the study once I finish painting.
I'm not sure i understand correctly your problem but if you want to install games on another drive of your choice go to Steam-settings-download-steam library folders-add library folder-and choose the folder you want.
After that close steam and restart it. Now, when you download a new game with steam, steam will offer you this new folder to install your game.
The second search result on Google:
describes how to move an existing Steam installation or add new library folders on other hard drives. With screenshots and everything, that should be what you are looking for, right?
My problem was that after moving my computer Steam no longer worked and I had to reinstall it. As soon as I did that steam began downloading my games again. I now have copied files from the original D installation over to the new C drive installation and all my add ons are functioning normally. I lost Aerofly FS2 during this process as steam deleted it. I will now have to go for a full reinstall. I will use your helpful hints to ensure it does not install onto my C drive. Thanks.
