Steam Games Backup Issue/Help.... (W8)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
before moving over to windows 8 i only managed to make a backup of four of the games i had installed, i have an image of the windows 7 partition before reformatting and i am currently mounting it via Acronis True Image so i have access to all the program files including the games, what i want to do is be able to restore the games that weren't backed up with steam so i don't have to re-download everything.

how could i restore those games from that access? is it just a simple copy and paste from old steam folder to the new one in Windows 8 or would i need to move the entire steam folder over to the windows 8 partition?
or is there some other way of doing this?

any help appreciated.

Copying just games still may requiring updating that games. With config files.
Copying the whole steam folder will requiring the steam to update.

As long as you can access the steamapps folder, you should be able to just copy/paste that.

Then when you go to play it, Steam will resolve any issues and you'll be set.
