The popularity of Palworld spreads like fire, conquering Steam, but also Xbox. Usually, fans who have chosen to enjoy games on consoles are less prone to errors or difficulties, as those devices have far less configurations that the creators have to take into account. On PC, however, the situation is quite different. Not only there are numerous hardware combinations, but also different software comes into play that can interfere with the game’s operation. Palworld also has such problems. There are players who have encountered disk write error which prevents them from launching the game. If you are also affected by this, fear not as the fix is quite simple.

Disk write error fix for Palworld

There are fans, who have bought and downloaded Palworld only to be greeted by a following disk write error message:

An error occurred while launching this game: disk write error - C:\program files(x86)\steam\steamapps\common\palworld\pal\binaries\win64\palworld-win64-shipping.exe

Despite many attempts to fix it like verifying game file integrity, reinstalling the title and so on, nothing solved this problem. In such situation updating the drivers is also just a snake oil. Worry not, as the solution is not very complex.

Everything shows that this issue is caused by an antivirus software quarantining Palworld’s executable file (palworld-win64-shipping.exe). So far, there are reports that it often happens with Avast and AVG, yet it is possible that it will malfunction with other antivirus programs, too. If you want to fix this error, all you have to do is to release the file from quarantine and whitelist it.

It is worth remembering that Palworld is still in Early Access, which means that problems are to be expected. If you encounter any, it would help the developers greatly if your report them by filling in the official contact form.
