I currently have 1 500gb ssd with my OS and steam library but i find that's just not enough space anymore. I'm thinking of picking up a new sata ssd and move my steam library on to that. My question is, am i likely to have problems running games with the steam client installed on my main ssd with OS and the library on a new drive? Or would i be better off to re-install steam on the new ssd with game library? Thanks in advance.

Moving Steam libs is easy, and no performance degradation.


Steam games location
In the steam client:
Steam
Settings
Downloads
Steam Library Folders
Add library folder


To move an already installed game
Games library
Right click the game
Properties
Local Files
Move Install Folder
