Steam/Games Saving on C:\My Documents When Installed on D:\ Drive

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey all, quick question about something ive noticed...

I have my raid 0 array partitioned into C:\\ and D:\\ drives, where the C:\\ drive is my system partition with windows, and my D:\\ drive is for games and music storage

I have steam and steam games installed on my D:\\ drive, as well as all non steam games, but I noticed that the game saves (like mass effect and dragon age, etc) are creating save folders in my C:\\My Documents folder. Why is that? How can I get them to save on my D:\\ drive where I want them?

Your user profile is still configured to your C Drive. As such, all your saves are going to be in your user profile.

it requires some registery hacks to have everything actually installed to the other drive.
steam mover just makes sorta shortcuts.

in the other threads posted here, people are saying to use Windows Easy Transfer? Will that accomplish what I need?

To be honest I haven't used it - I just reinstalled steam on my c300 from my intel and then moved over the games and they worked. I use the c300 exclusivley for my games and the intel for boot and some other apps with my seagates as media etc.

Sorry I can't help, but I just run steam off that drive and all of the game, but I only have like 50-75gb of games on it.
