How to Fix Steam Disk Write/Read Error

55 ratings | 10366 views
Have you ever received Steam disk write error while installing or updating games? An error occurred while installing/updating [game title] (disk write error) If you are having troubles updating a game or installing a game on Steam due to a disk write error now, try the following solutions out. 1. Run as Administrator Go to the location of Steam (default location is C:/program files[86]/Steam). Right-click on the steam.exe and go to properties. Head to the Compatibility tab in properties and make sure "run this program as an administrator" is ticked. Click Apply and run Steam again. Check if the Steam disk write error fixed. 2. Remove Write Protection Run Command Prompt as Administrator. Type these commands one by one and press Enter key after each: diskpart list disk select disk # (# is the number of the hard drive with which you're getting disk error) attributes disk clear readonly 3.Check Hard Drive for Errors MiniTool Partition Wizard Free is a good recommendation. Its "Check File System" and "Surface Test" feature can lead you through the disk check process easily and quickly. 4.Reinstall Steam 5. Investigate Firewalls Certain firewalls may prevent Steam from talking to its servers. You can temporarily disable it for testing purposes. If that’s the reason, it may be necessary to add exceptions in your firewalls for Steam. 6.Check RAM for Errors Memory errors can cause issues with the Steam installation process, as well as gameplay. You'll want to work with a tech support specialist to investigate possible issues with your system memory.

It won't let me repair the disk(ssd). It says it's being used by another process.

Restarting steam, running as admin, after changing the ownership of the drive to my username seemed to clear it up for me.

Well, haven't seen if this fixed it yet but I have a few things to say, the now talking made it hard to followup at times, as well as no jump cuts to the end of the downloads. Other than that let's hope and pray this worked.
