There are various technical issues that may potentially affect the game, and they usually occur at the worst possible moment. One of the most frequent Dota 2 errors is the update disk write error message.
The HDD that it's downloading to is a Hitachi HTS545032B9SA00 and it's formatted to NTFS.I believe i've had this, its was a problem with my hard drive, what i did to solve it was re-install dota in a new folder, causing it to be written on a different part of the drive, and evading the disk error, in the future, to fully repair the disk error, consider defragging or reformatting your hard-drive.This can occur if your Dota 2 install is corrupted or incomplete due to a restart or error.Sometimes these user permissions break and need to be refreshed.Have you encountered an error like “An error occured while updating Dota 2 (disk read error)“?So while i was doing the dota 2 update, allmost to the end, my antivirus program finds a “problem” or a trojan as it says in vconsole2 I tryed evrything, disabled my fire wall and antivirus, restarted the updated again same error at the same place […] hit play on the game in Steam and this should let you launch the game.
