[OPEN SOURCE] Automatic Steam Backup/Restore Tool - Page 20

post #191 of 257
Thread Starter 
Well i have noticed that if I restore a game that isn't up to date, it will say that there is a large download. But if you look at the download a large percentage of the 'download' will already be complete. Is that what you are seeing maybe?

also what version of SBT was borderlands backed up with, fairly new?

Quick question, I just found out about this backup utility and it looks awesome, however, will i need to delete my old backup directory and just let this program do a full backup? I'm trying to figure out the best way to keep everything backed up. So will this backup only installed games and then keep them updated? To get a more complete backup will i need to install my entire game library (not all at once obviously) so the tool can backup everything. Also, after the initial backup has been done and games uninstalled from steam will the backups still get any future updates released by steam or dlc for uninstalled games? Thanks for any input.

If this is the first backup with this tool that will be best.

See my very last answer on how to keep backups up to date.

Yes, this would be best.

The games will need to be installed in steam to get backups. Then you would use the Update Library feature. This feature will scan your library for newer files than the current backup and then back them up

A new update!

this update drastically improves the performance, especially when backing up many small files, and fixed a few non-critical bugs.

Download Here:
Steam Backup Tool
Source

This program requires .NET Framework 4.0 and Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 to run.

Change List:
Code:
v1.6.1
+ Enable thread count selection when using LZMA2 compression
^ Now uses a higher performance 7zip Wrapper
^ Updated 7z.dll
^ Disable backup buttons while the check list box is being populated
* Removed backup/restore of the generic "steamapps" folder (Valve has made this redundant)
* Fixed the library drop down box on the restore menu not getting a default selection.
* Can now determine if steam is using a 'steamapps' or 'SteamApps' folder. (Could be either, Cause of the above bug)
^ Added people to credits
