Feature Request: Allow use of GCF files located on a NTFS partition.
As much as I would love to delete Steam from Windows and move entirely to Linux that is not yet an option for me, at least not yet. Hopefully in the near future. That being said with limited space on my Linux partition installing 10-15 gigs of game data that is already on my computer is a bit annoying. Currently Steam does not recognize GCF files if they are on a NTFS partition(neither symlink nor adding the folder to the Steam libraries will work). A feature that recognizes these files would save users who dual boot a good chunk of space. I apologize if this is something not possible in Linux, my knowledge on the topic of file systems is very lacking and thank you for reading.
