Steam says that it is validating my garrysmod files… did Garry think I pirated it?

Or should I just forget about it?

happened to me i would just let it pass u have nothing to worry about if you bought it from steam… this happened to me too about 3 months back i just let it do what ever it was doing and played other games till its finishes

my guess is u should just forget about it

Ok I was just curious.

It does that when you crash while gmod is being downloaded/updated i think.
Its just checking if all the files are OK
