Palworld has seen incredible success since its launch on PC and Xbox. The game is a Steam Early Access title and there are bound to be errors and issues that PC users will experience while playing this game. PC users are experiencing an Unhandled Exception error, LowLevelFatalError, crashes, and more. Now PC users also report the Disk Write error when playing the game or installing it. In this Palworld guide, I have listed fixes that’ll help resolve the Disk Write Error.

Steam users report that they are unable to play Palworld due to the Disk Write Error. There are multiple reasons for this error like corrupt Steam download cache, anti-virus software blocking the executable, and more. The following are the fixes that will help you fix Palworld’s Disk Write Error.

Disable Anti-virus or Add An Exception

If you are experiencing the Disk Write Error when launching Palworld, it’s your anti-virus software has quarantined the game executable by falsely detecting it as malware. DeepGuard is known to do it, and other third-party anti-virus software are also responsible for Disk Write Errors. Either disable the anti-virus or exclude Palworld’s folder from it, I recommend the latter.

After that, right-click Palworld in your Steam library > properties > Installed files > click “Verify Integrity of game files”. Steam will download any missing files and the Disk Write Error will be fixed.
