Can anyone familiar with UE engine explain why unpacking an update for an UE game on Steam can render your system useless and take so long?
I have CE installed on my local C (SSD) along with my operating system (W10_64) and when downloading a small hotfix for CE or other UE games on Steam, even a small 5mb hotfix it can take 30 minutes plus to actually install and meanwhile it hangs the entire system until complete.
The SSD is running at full throttle and 100% usage during this time, but why? Is this because of how Steam installs the update or is this just how UE paks install? It seems excessive.
