I've been dealing with the exact same issue lately (last night, actually). Tried to uninstall/reinstall skyrim because my copy was messed up and it wouldn't let me reinstall. Does that mean it's a problem with Steam itself? I was worried something was terribly wrong with my hard drive. It installed on my SSD just fine, but I can't believe I had to go that far. I would've rather installed on my much-more-spacious HDD.cuisinart8 wrote: ↑Wed Jun 21, 2017 2:11 pmSo I uninstalled Space Engineers a while back because I never played it and it was taking up obscene amounts of disk space. I went into the Steam folder today to see what games were taking up the most space- and lo and behold, Space Engineers still has multiple GB of files in its folder! I wouldn't even be that mad if I could actually get rid of it, but Steam has made the entire steamapps folder read-only, and nothing I do changes that- I uncheck the read-only box, and it takes 5 mins to apply the change to everything, and I check back in the properties- and read only is checked again! When I try to delete anything, it first asks for admin permission, which I grant, and then says that I need permission from the user account I'm using to delete the files! At this point I want to punch both the Steam programmers and the Win10 ones!
