    Old Steam games thought I'd uninstalled hogging my HD!


    I was tidying up my HD recently and I noticed there appears to be several 10's of GB of old games and demos I thought I had uninstalled, through Steam client probably...

    Can't find them in the uninstall wizard through control panel and they aren't showing up in Steam either.

    Someone on Steam suggested I just delete the folders. Can I do that and be sure everything is safely removed from my HD?

    They are in programfiles(x86) > Steam > SteamApps

    Yes you can delete the folders. If you do decide to play them again you will have to download them again.

    I just moved my entire Steam installation from the SSD to my HDD
    saved 93Gigs of space, which was nice..!!


    Easiest way is to move the Steamapps file over first - then completely uninstall Steam..
    after a restart, you re-install Steam on the new drive and merge the Steamapps file back
    into the main Steam file (in Program Files (x86) - then follow the instructions from
    Steam when you want to restart..


    93Gigs is a really big file - we forget this when we download new games into Steam
    - it grows like topsy..
