Steam Disk Write Error while updating

Recommended Posts

My Don't Starve Together was updating when it came across and error.
In the downloads page, it says disk write error.
While hovering over is it shows me this:
steam/steamapps/downloading/(Numbers here)/data/scripts/prefabs/(game object name here).hua

Access is denied to me when i try to go in the data folder.
Any solutions?

Sounds like trouble with file permissions. Assuming your computer is running some later version of Windows, modifying files in C:\Program Files\* and C:\Program Files (x86)\* require elevated privileges by default. A good practice would be to have your game files in a folder that doesn't require elevated privileges to modify, since you don't want to be running Steam with elevated privileges anyway.
