Can You Transfer All Steam Files to a USB Drive?

My laptop disk is out of storage, so I need to create a new space. Putting my only Steam game, Terraria, on an 8GB flash drive seems like the only sensible course of action. Is it feasible to accomplish this, and if yes, what are the basic guidelines?

Yes, you can transfer all Steam files and games to a USB flash drive.

Transferring all Steam files to a USB drive can free up space on your computer's hard drive, allowing for better performance and storage capacity. It also provides portability, as you can easily carry your Steam games and files anywhere. Additionally, having your Steam files on a USB drive can be a backup in case your computer crashes or experiences technical issues.

To simplify the transfer process, I recommend you try EaseUS Todo PCTrans Professional - a reliable data transfer program that can move your Steam games to a USB/SSD or another drive without data loss.
