Games Taking Long Time To Load

Hello, all my games take longer to load now than they did when I purchased the Rift, I always get the popup that says "blank game is taking too long to load"....or something similar but it has become annoyingly long. I have moved my Oculus and my games to my "E" drive (3TB HDD) but my "C" drive is a 500 GB SSD. Just wondering if anyone has run into this and is it just the difference between the SSD to the HDD..(anyone else not on an SSD and not on "C" drive notice this?)...if so, I will move everything back. Thanks

    I've seen this happen on some games, especially larger ones like The Climb. As long as the game eventually starts I wouldn't be too concerned with the load times as this is not abnormal.

    So, you've moved them from a fast SSD to a slow spinny drive, and now they're taking longer to load.  Yeah, that's kinda exactly what I'd expect to happen, do you really need confirmation? :)

    Did you miss the part that the "popup" keeps coming up, is this normal with slow spinny drives or was the Oculus only supposed to run on SSD?? Or did you miss the part that they are "annoyingly long to load now"??? Thanks for your helpful response, I am aware that the slow spinny drive will be slower than the SSD, this is how someone gets over 1800 posts I guess.

    Thank you, wasn't sure if I had an issue with my system or not.

    Yes, the pop-up will come up after some set amount of time (I believe around 10 seconds) but some large games will take longer and you'll always see the message, even though the wait time is normal.

    I bought a 1TB SSD for my games and I'm still getting the message with games like Star Trek Bridge Crew. Is there something I should check or do?

    That's just what happens sometimes. ST:BC needs to start Uplay first, for example, and it doesn't matter that it's on a SSD. Your mileage will vary.

    As long as the game eventually loads, I wouldn't worry about it.
