Nice feature, but I just worked around it by installing Steam on my regular HDD, as opposed to my SSD? Steam boots up when the computer starts anyway, so it's not like you're waiting terribly long for stuff to happen.

Might be nice if you have a popular game you want to run on the SSD but leave the rest off of. I know a lot of friends who used to wish for that with their original drives and larger games like GTA

This is something that has been a long time coming TBH. I don't really expect to use it myself, but I might. I have a 1TB HDD just for PC games. I HAVE had to uninstall stuff to make room, but I really don't need as many games installed as I have XD

I've been doing this with symbolic links for a while now, but it would definitely help if you could achieve the same effect within Steam itself. Not sure why some games work and others don't though; I'll have to look through my collection and see which ones can be moved.

Sounds good. Unlike most, I don't have very much space on one partition of my tiny hard drive. I would have liked to install some games on one partition, then some on another.

It's about time
120gb ssd just isnt enough for 200 games

Odd note to this, just bought a few games last night and had the option of doing this without having to modify the launch command for it. Seems Valve caught on and just let everyone in
