New Steam Library Folder On Same Drive?
I can't seem to make another steam library folder on my same drive. I want to make a library folder in C:/SteamLibrarySSD. However, I keep receiving this message every time I try to designate that as a steam library folder,

"Selected drive already has a Steam library folder. Steam will manage multiple game installs in a single folder for you."

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

@Seven7, thank you so much! Editing the .vdf file worked perfectly and now I have another steam folder on my ssd outside of the program files. Thank you very much for your help.

Well I've tried it now offer new library but when I choose to install game in it sais "disk write failure" even if I run steam as administrator and so... any ide?

Question answered I just figured out that I gotta make a "steamapps" library aswell in the chosen one where steam.dll is.
Wow, thanks for the fix. (I had to copy-paste the last two fields of that file and change the "1" to "2" and the folder uri and it works)

I have NO idea why they've removed this possibility, they NEED to bring it back.

This tactic did not work for rme. I wrote my entry as follows: "2" "C:\Games\Bethesda Softworks\"

you must add it before }
here how my file looks like:

"LibraryFolders"
{
"TimeNextStatsReport" "................."
"ContentStatsID" ".............................."
"1" "C:\\Games"
"2" "D:\\Games"
}

I edited the .vdf file and i see the new folder in "settings-downloads-steam library folders". But it doesn't show any games installed. Just says 0 installed.

How do i get the games from the new folder loaded?
