Steam: How it could manage fast and big storage

It’s 2020, one decade of SSD and Steam still doesn’t help PC gamers, but they can!

Prioritizing your games, one at a time

  1. Games that require and SSD to work.
  2. Games which load times can benefit from.
  3. Games that are constantly played.
  4. Games that are installed forcefully (pinned).

Moving games automatically

  • Get the most played game from the last 14 days.
  • If the game can fit in the swap area, remove the least played games in the swap space until the most played game fits.
  • If the game doesn’t fit, don’t move it at all.
  • Go to the next game in the list of most played and repeat.
