Now open the steamapps folder, locate and rename it to

DO NOT DELETE THIS FILE as it is recommended not to delete the as it may be used later to determine recurring issues.

When you remove these files also clear out the downloading folder as well in one of the previous steps above to make sure we have a fresh run at downloading Dota 2. Hopefully the above has fixed the stalling update issue and I want to state that all fixes are based upon previous threads and there are too many people to thank for assistance in resolving this issue.

I do not take credit for the guide as most of the fixes have been a community effort I have just typed it up nicely for those who are experiencing difficulties.

Now I'm assuming that those files are linked to dota 2 (a confirmation on this would be great too).

But if anyone else is having the same issue and can confirm that removing those files helps break the stuck download issue then it would be a great help.

Here's a list and a guide with step by steps on how to possibly fix the stalling update/download for Dota 2 client. • Clearing out the Dota 2 files from your depotcache folder.

• Removing the Dota 2 files from the downloading folder. • Changing the region to force download from a different server.

570 is the steamid number for Dota 2 (as seen on the dota 2 store page).

Delete the folder and any state_570_###.patch files to restart the download again.

Then i went looking and I may have found a solution to the issue but would need others who have the issue to confirm.

Essentially after looking for any dota 2 files that could be conflicting I decided to remove the 571-573 files from the depotcache folder in my steam folder.

so if you are in SEA region you want to download from the US or Europe.
