Main Menu

Case Sensitive Filesystems not supported on Mac

Steam gives me the error, "Steam requires that ~/Library/Application Support/Steam be created on a case insensitive filesystem." or "Steam requires that ~/Documents/Steam Content be created on a case insensitive filesystem."

Steam does not currently support case sensitive filesystems.

If you wish to use Steam please make sure of the following:

  • Steam is installed on a case-insensitive partition or hard drive
  • Your User folder is installed on a case-insensitive partition or hard drive

For users that wish to use symbolic links to get your case-sensitive system to work you can refer to the following thread here.
