Burning Purchased steam games to dvd.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
hello,

is it possible to burn the steam games you bought to dvd for safe keep, like incase a hard drive crashes?

If so, how do I go about doing this.

All games are linked to your steam account, if hard drive breaks, simply redownload steam, enter account info, and redownload game

I just move my whole steam folder to a backup drive. Yes it does take a while but you can also just drag the .exe and make a shortcut and keep on playing.

Yeah whats the point of doing all that? Steam has made it so easy that when you do run into hard drive failures, you just log back in and just download all the games to the hdd again.

The only thing worth to back up is your sounds downloaded from valve online servers.
