Default Re: backing up steam games...

I don't know about Steam's builtin backup system, but when I setup my Windows gaming system I just copied the steamapps dir from my Linux desktop and Steam pulled 'em all in fine. A few games needed updating, but I didn't have to download the whole thing. If you have 100GB free space somewhere, just try to copy the steamapps dir or the specific .gcf file(s) and then back again after.
