post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the files for a steam game, how do I add them to my steam account without having to go through the download?

You can restore a steam backup but I don't think you can add the files of a previous installation back into your steam library.

copy them into steam/steamapps/common then restart steam and run the game from library it should start validating files

oh and some of the games might be in a different folder (steam/steamapps/"yourAccountName")
