Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has been infamous for having quite a bit of issues. One of them is file corruption, or the error code 0x570.
Even though this error might seem like an ordeal to be dealt with, there are some easy methods to troubleshoot and ultimately fix this issue.
It is unlikely that this error is caused by old drivers and old Windows install, but as always with any error, I recommend trying to update both the OS and all of your graphics drivers. Otherwise, there are a few other fixes you can try.
How to Fix Error 0x570 – File Corruption Rainbow Six Siege
Most of these fixes aren’t recommended by the official developers for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, and not Steam as well. However, because this issue has been persistent for quite some time, players have found these to work best.
To fix this error code, you don’t have to be the world’s best programmer. Nevertheless, general knowledge of computers and software is required to do so. Without further ado, these are the fixes for error 0x570 – Rainbow Six Siege:
Verify Integrity of Game Files
- Open your Steam application.
- Navigate to Library and find Rainbow Six Siege.
- Go to Properties > Local Files.
- Select Verify integrity of game files.
- Wait it to finish, then try to launch the game.
Restart your PC
Before restarting your PC try to restart Steam and try to launch the game. If it doesn’t work, then try restarting your PC.
You might think that this is unlikely to be the cause, but you’ll be surprised by how much issues arise from the computer being in sleep or hibernation.
Run the Game as an Administrator
Find the installation folder for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and run the game as an administrator directly from the installation folder. It is usually located at: \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
To run it as an administrator: Right-click the .exe file > Properties > Compatibility > Make sure that run this program as an administrator is selected.
If you still have the same 0x570 annoying error, try the next method as well.
Disable or Uninstall IOBit Advanced System Care and Driver Booster
For some reason, this “care” program has been the main origin of the 0x570 error. So, you can either disable it before launching Rainbow Six, or completely uninstall it.
However, I’m aware that not many would like the idea of uninstalling this program, so kindly disable it before launching the game. Do this every time you play Rainbow Six!
