    Hello. I have installed a sandisk micro memory card on my HP stream 13 laptop. I am trying to play games on steam and it told me I did not have enough disk space avaliable to download game. I bought a micro sandisk card and installed it. I can't get steam to use the extra space from the micro disc. Still says I need 2183 mb. My card is 8 GB. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Please help!

    You would have to install that game into a directory on the SD card.

    But, I'm not sure if you can do that with one game or if you have to move the whole library? I'm an avid Steam user, (have about $2k worth of games) but hate to say I have never really paid close attention to the directory options that much.

    Thank you! I'm not even sure how to move it to the SD card at all. It doesn't give me that option on steam.

    Likely because it is seen by Windows as removable media. You typically can't install software to removable media.

    How about spending some time to cleanup the primary HDD?
