    Steam now allows installing to multiple locations

    In case no one knew, also when did this happen?

    Went to install the new 3dmark demo and it asked for a location, I had the choice of creating new steam folders on my other drives.

    It was in beta for a while....

    I think the change happened around late December early January.

    Yeah, they added back in the big late December update I think.

    Finally, the most demanded Steam feature since 2004.

    Re: Steam now allows installing to multiple locations

    This IS my first time on the forums outside of email notifications in quite some time.

    So I'm wondering if I can install steam on my lappy on the internal drive, and use an external drive for the game installs...128gb drive doesn't leave a lot of room.
