Has anyone tried to use an NFS or SAMBA share to store and play their steam games from? Currently my games are located in the default location which is ~/.local/share/Steam and my home partition is very small. I have read that I can just close steam, move the entire Steam folder to another drive/partition and then symlink to it BUT I am wondering if it would work over a 100Mbit LAN using an NFS or SAMBA share? If not I can understand that the write/read speed is just not up to par to play a game over my LAN but I also want other's feedback about the symlink solution to moving ones steam games to another partition.
If the LAN idea won't work, do you think a USB2.0 connected drive formatted as ext4 would suffice?
