Update throws disk write error - appmanifest_892970.acf, and game will not launch
Patch 0.156.2 has caused my game to throw a 'Disk write error' (the file noted is 'appmanifest_892970.acf') and will now not launch. I have followed all the Steam FAQ's for update fails and their support said if the FAQ's didnt help me, I need to find local support.
Do you have any known issues on this, or know the file I ref'd and could I just install a good one to fix problem?

Have you tried these sollutions?
or try this step by step video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcVppDO8irk
Specificly the verify game files sollution is the one I am guessing will help if there isn't a local computer issue with write protection on a game file or a c: file
Go to steam library and right click valheim. Then Properties --> Local files --> Click "Verify integrity of game files.."
Hello, thanks for quick reply. The first link is actually the checklist I used when I contacted Steam. the chkdsk /r command itself too almost a day to run. Anyway, I ended up copying a working appmanifest from a friends PC and replaced mine, and it's working like a charm now. Thx!
The chkdsk /r feels is a very heavy thing to check the whole disc is doing okay. it takes basicly forever, but is worth it if you have alot of issues (or your computer suddently shut of due to a power surge for example)
Did you try to verify game files?
Do you know what caused the issue in the first place?
