[OPEN SOURCE] Automatic Steam Backup/Restore Tool - Page 9

post #81 of 257
All good mate.

I'll d/l and let it backup overnight but obviously we'll be able to see immediately on start whether there are any further glitches.

Let you know how it goes smile.gif

Cheers

UPDATE : 23/12/2011 - 3.05PM

Worked like a charm.
(Apologies for delay in reply. Been working too hard and fell asleep before I got to the gaming PC smile.gif )

Hey Guys

I've updated SBT to version 1.1.11!

Download Here:
Steam Backup Tool v1.1.11
Source


Change List:
Code:
v1.1.11
* Disbaled directory finding buttons during backup and restore
+ Backup directories only if it is needed (IE if the game hasn't been updated in any way since that last backup, don't bother backing it up)

Can I suggest you guys a simple (I guess, uh) feature to work on?
It would be nice to have a selective restore, like, when you click on the Restore button you are showed a list with all the backed-up games, and you can choose which one to restore.

Can it be done? Tks!

Hi d3viliz3d

The way steam stores its files makes it rather dificult to do this as any games that use the source engine has alot of files referncing each other than arnt in a single folder (ie any other game will have ALL of its files stored inside its on folder within "common"). also the program back up certain registry entries, it would be next to impossible to seperate the entries from eachother without creating a lot of extra uneeded reg entries.

if you only want to restore a few games, you can just grab it from the "\bin\common\" directory of the backup root and place it in "\Steam\steamapps\common\"
you might have to "download" the game agian it will the HDD for the game and install it, it may download a few misc files but after that it will be fine and dandy.

there are other compromises that I might be able to work with but for now ive been rather buisy on other projects, if you are keen you could always look at it ;p.

Got it, thanks for the reply!
I will restore the games manually then, looks like a fair deal tongue.gif

I'd like to have a look at it but I'm afraid I'm not comfortable with these coding languages frown.gif
