Yeah, that was my question, and you answered it. Good job, and thanks.

BTW I would add a note that if you don't touch the main Steam directory as I described earlier, you could just install the steam app and all your games will still be there without needing to be re-downloaded. Example, if you keep your games drive on a separated HD like I do.
