Have you ever had to reinstall all of your steam games all over again? - Page 4

post #31 of 49
I've done this twice. And I have about 120 games. With fast internet it doesn't take that long.

Grabbing my games back off steam wasn't too bad. But I didn't realize my New Vegas saves and Borderlands characters were in a folder in My Documents. Good game.

Lost all of em (plus lots of music and movies as well as all my documents which I thankfully had on my laptop as well) once. Now I do a system image every week(it gives my old HDD something to do at least, plus I don't want to download 200gb of steam games again). Never again.

I'm capped at 1mb speeds on steam so I opt to back the games up. I'm just not a fan of this have to be online to play a game stuff.

I've had to on a few occasions but I only have 3 games so it wasn't bad at all.

Far too many times. Especially when I had XP.

I am not too bothered with installing games back (even tho the Steam folder exceeds 500GB) but more with installing all the software and customization back.

I had the opposite happen to me.
I'd wake up, log on, and all of my games would be magically re-installed.

Twice! Now I only install the games that I'm currently playing.

Had to reinstall Windows 7. It stored all my old stuff in Windows.old. Great, except it also took away my permissions for most of the files, like exe and dll.

If this happens to you, right click Windows.old and change the permissions. Once I worked that out I put my old Steam back into a new Steam install and they all had to be started as though they'd only just been downloaded....
