    Well, after a nice Windows XP crash last night I was unable to backup my Half Life 2 save games :wtf:

    Fortunately I backed up Half Life 2 to DVD using the super feature called "backup files" :uhoh: Thinking this was going to save me some trouble, heartache and pain as my download limit per month on a 12mbit cable is just 10GB! That also is a bit of a joke :mad:

    Anywaz the point of my thread is to whine about Steam! I hate it, it's been nothing but hastle since I got it. Just to polish off my evening, it has crashed 5 times since a restore, and that has been since the Steam Application has been download 3 times.

    Whilst I have been writting this post, it has crashed again! At random points during the install from backup. My advice - buy the game on DVD and forget any type of restore using the Steam backup.

    I Feel better now I have my little winge, gonna make a cup of tea now.

    well take my advice.. dont use the backup feature, just compress the gcf files inside .\steam\steamapps with WinRAR or 7-Zip and burn it on a CD
    to restore just copy these files :) thats it..
