For entirely incomprehensible reasons, some time ago I deleted my steamapps folder (having made a copy of it first), and then moved the files from the copy back into the folder. I was trying to solve a problem with steam's login process. It worked, but now I have a new problem.
See, for certain games (MW2, ArmA 2, Portal) Steam is insisting that I need to download, in some cases, multiple GB of files. Even when (1) the files are manifestly already there and (2) verifying the game cache confirms that they're already there.
I really don't want to download loads and loads of files. (Bandwidth limitations) Does anyone know how I can make steam realize that the files it wants are already there?
