Recently bought Divinity: Original Sin 2 and have been experiencing an odd bug I haven't run into before with any games.
When I turn off my computer, when I turn it back on DOS2 appears as uninstalled on Steam. This doesn't happen EVERY time I turn it off, only sometimes.
The files are NOT uninstalled, however Steam doesn't recognize them until I try to "install" the game, at which point it discovers the already existing files. The same issue I'm experiencing is mentioned in this question Should I be worried if Steam forgot I installed a game? However no solution is presented.
Obviously this isn't the hugest issue as steam re-discovers the game when I hit install, but it does force a 5-10 minute wait before loading the game up while it's rediscovering the files. Why is this happening in the first place and how can I make it stop?
Game bought direct from steam, stored on internal HD.
