Steam: Fix Corrupted and Unreadable File Directory (0x570)



Writer and Storywriter


Sometimes, when using Steam, there are some technical issues that you might run into. One of them is the infamous 0x570 error. Essentially, this error means that some of the files on the game that you’re trying to launch are corrupted, or deleted. Most likely, the former is the case, and you’ll have to see whether you have any corrupted files for that game. Along with that, we will try another few fix if you’re still getting the same error.

Steam: Fix Corrupted and Unreadable File Directory (0x570)

This can occur with any game, and sometimes, the issue is persistent for a couple of days at a time. Some fixes in this list will fix the issue for a brief period only.

How to Fix Corrupted and Unreadable File Directory – Steam 0x570

IMPORTANT: Before we get into the methods with which you can fix the file corrupted error, it is important that you make necessary backups on your important game files.

One of the first methods for troubleshooting the issue is of course, using the “Verify integrity of game files” feature on Steam. This is how you do it:

Verify Integrity of Game Files

  1. Launch your Steam suite.
  2. Navigate to Library, and find the game for which this error occurs for you.
  3. Right-click it and go to Properties > Local Files.
  4. In the menu below, click on “Verify Integrity of Game Files”.
  5. Wait for it to finish, and then try the game.

Chances are that this didn’t fix this infamous error. If that’s the case, you can navigate to the second method in this list.

Restart your PC

Sometimes, if your computer has been on sleep or hibernation, some disk storage might be displaced. That might also include the game you’re trying to launch.

To tackle this, simply restart your computer, and if something was wrong, it should all be back to normal after this.

Run as Administrator

Instead of launching the game directly from the Steam application, try to launch the game from its install directory.

After you’ve found that particular game’s install directory, right-click the executable file. Go to Properties, and then Compatibility. Make sure to check both “Disable fullscreen optimizations” and “Run this program as an administrator”.

Disable IOBit Advanced System Care and Driver Booster

This seems to be the main issue for this problem. The connection to why this happens between both programs is unclear yet. If you’re looking for a permanent way to fix the 0x570 error, then uninstall this program completely, if not disable it.

What I failed to mention is that this can also occur if you have old graphics drivers or an old Windows version. Try to update both as well!
