Win+Rand enter this URL:
download_depot <app_id> <depot_id> <manifest_id>(refer to the Reference tables below)
The depot will likely download to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content\app_640820\depot_640821\ (or wherever Steam is installed)
Once downloaded, you can move the depot anywhere.
download_depot <app_id> <depot_id> <manifest_id> [<delta_manifest_id>]
||the game's App ID|
||the Depot ID corresponding to a content package (e.g., binaries, game assets)|
||the Manifest ID corresponding to a version of the content package|
||the Manifest ID corresponding to a previous version of the content package|
delta_manifest_id argument is not omitted, Steam will download only the differences between the target manifest and delta manifest.
Download the game content:
download_depot 640820 640821 6741447117850778077
You cannot change the path to which the depot downloads; however, you can "trick" Steam into downloading depots wherever you want using Junction Points.
What are Junction Points? Junction Points are a type of symbolic link unique to the NTFS file system.
If Steam was installed on your
C: drive, and you wanted to download the depot to
D:, you would do the following:
app_640820folder, if any, in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content.
app_640820, such as
mklink /J "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content\app_640820" "D:\app_640820"
download_depotcommand in the Steam Console.
