Gmod won't keep downloaded files

Whenever I join a server, a load of files are downloaded.

They always used to stay in my gmod folder, and not need to be downloaded again.

But now, all the files from each need to be redownloaded EACH time I join a server. What?

I’ve cleaned my gmod, and it still does it. Needs to redownload all the server files on each connection.

Help?

I am having the same problem, i have reinstalled Gmod countless times trying to fix this. So far nothing has worked. This problem is also making it hard for me to join any server that you need to download a map. Anyone who can help plz do! I want Gmod working again ><

I’m reistalling/upgrading my OS to 64x now, so hopefully a complete reinstall will fix the probloem :smiley:
