L4D2 did not give me any install options. I just tried to install on another computer and again it gave me no options...it automatically installs to my C drive. Some games did give me an option, but not L4D2.

Don't bother buying it at the moment, because new purchasers and some other regular players can't even launch the game.

All I know is that it didn't give me the option to install on the drive of my choice. I've never used it, but I know of some people who use this ( http://www.traynier.com/software/steammover ) to move some of their games to another drive, to give them more room.

Steam games will only run from the steam apps folder, as for me, i had this issue during a games spending dpree over christmas sales. my drivce ran out of room and Only then was I offered the option of installing elsewhere..
If you have more than one drive and decent internet speeds i would advise just deleting the steam folder and reinstalling it on a separate drive that isnt your C. lots of benefits obviously, and just queue up all your games to download overnight outside of your fair usage policy (if it applies)

How is performance when games are on an external drive? What connection(s) are your drives? USB2, USB3, Firewire. etc.?

I've got a PC partition (Boot Camp) on an iMac for PC only games and the partition is not very large. It's about maxed out with only 2 games. If I could use an external drive rather than re-partition the PC section for more size, I would prefer to do that. It doesn't get used for much else. I only wonder what formatting would be required for the external drive in order for Steam to work properly. I've got some old 40 and 80gb IDE drives with nothing better to do.

can someone send me a l4d2 copy please
you realise that this isnt a "trading place" right? and you cant just come around and ask for a copy of a game.

Sorry if I'm repeating a response but the thread is tl;dr.

I know you can house your steam folder in a different HDD (ex. I use my 120GB Solid State Drive for gaming [C:] and I house my steam folder in my 1.5TB main drive [D:] and on the C: I simple made a shortcut to the steam .exe launcher, thus allowing everything to save on a different drive but allowing my Solid State Drive to achieve max Read speed.). To do this uninstall steam and install it on specified drive then make a shortcut from the desired HDD and your set. Hope that helps.

Uninstall steam from C: , install it on D: . Download the games and your problem is solved.
