Verifying download taking forever in ARK: Survival Evolved - Possible fixes
Clearing the download cache is a simple fix that may help resolve issues when Steam is stuck on verifying installation. This is a common problem that various issues, such as an outdated game client, corrupted game files, or network connection problems, can cause. By removing the downloaded game files from the cache, Steam will be forced to re-download the files, which often resolves the issue.
