Steam Download allocating time

I know my friends also experienced this but when this patch downloaded tonight, the allocating process took 15 minutes, then the installer took another 30 minutes.
Please for future patches make sure that you are not having to allocate for the entire game files as if downloading the entire game.

My understanding is this is an issue with all UE4 games...

I can't recall that, it was a ~47 MB file and it had to reinstall the whole game it seemed. Disk space activity was ~5 MINS. I even had it on a SSD

yes and the speed was over 150mb/s of disk writing, and yet it took substantially longer than you would think for such a small patch 😛 someth was not quite right.
