Difficulties with Steam launching games on second/third hard drive

Hello guys
I’m more a Linux beginner and installed Endeavour OS with with Windows as dual boot after I upgraded my PC. Endeavour OS is working fine but I have some problems with my games. I mounted my two hard drives (Both drives have the NTFS Partition) and added them on Steam to detect my games which is working fine. The main problem is that steam can launch the games but they immediately close after three seconds and only War Thunder is working. Proton is activated too and I checked the game files on steam which gave me no errors. I tried to launch one game directly with the .exe and it was working normally (I had Wine installed already). I already asked the Steam Support how to fix it but they can’t help me and asked me to check that my system is up to date and my hardware is supported which is up to date and the hardware should support all these games.

Here are some details about my system:
Operating System: EndeavourOS
KDE Plasma Version: 5.27.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.106.0
Qt Version: 5.15.9
Kernel Version: 6.3.4-arch1-1 (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 4 × Intel® Core™ i5-4670K CPU @ 3.40GHz
Memory: 31.3 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/PCIe/SSE2
Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
Product Name: H97M-D3H

I hope we can find my problem because I really want to slowly daily drive Linux instead of Windows.

Although technically possible, it is not a good idea to use Steam in Linux with an NTFS partitioned drive. In my experience, it is not stable and will lead to problems.

I either recommend using Steam in Windows with the NTFS drive or partition the drive with Steam games with EXT4 in case you finally decide to use Linux exclusively.

I would strongly disagree with everything you said about ntfs.

That ext4 or btrfs are both very suited for steam today.

As for the second drive. . . No idea, I’ll wait for someone else to chime in.
