My 120GB gaming SSD has filled up much quicker than I thought, so (for right now) I'm stuck with two options:
*1 Uninstall some games I'm not currently playing and the re-download them when I'm ready (a HUGE waste of time)...OR
*2 Use Steam Mover to move some of my games to my data HDD until I'm ready to play them

But I have a question: if I use Steam Mover, will my SSD drive still "appear" full? For example, if I have 100GB of games on my SSD, and I move 40GB to my HDD, will my SSD show 60GB or 100GB full?

AND if it still shows up as 100GB full, can I install more games, or will the computer prevent me from filling it up?

I appreciate any comments!

You don't need to use Steam Mover. Whatever game you want to move, unless it's a Valve game, look in [steam directory]\steamapps\common and move the game somewhere else. The only caveat is I'm not sure if Steam will register that game as no longer there.

Optionally you can do that and then add a symbolic link so you can still run the game from Steam as if nothing happened.
