    Hey o/

    So i continue my threads with my hate for Steam. I've asked how to move game from PC to PC, but I got a LOT of problems, and so after being mad for a too long time, i took the decision to delete Steam and well screw my games, i'll see what to do with them later one day.

    But now i've another problem. I unistalled Steam, but there's a folder Steam staying, with ALL the basic folders, but showing a size total of bytes.

    But i just can't delete it, asking for admistrator permissions, but of course i'm the administrator of my PC.

    Any help ?

    W10, 64bits.

    Thanks o/

    Don't even bother. It's not like it's gonna give you notifications or anything.

    Nah, too much OCD on this one, I really don't want to see this bad thing on my brand new computer to be honnest.

    Even cmd as administrator is making a huge nope. So well.

    that's a problem with windows 10 itself...
    it has some "protection" in programs folders..
    when i want to replace or delete stuff in there it's a fucking pain, need to enter in safe mode..

    weird.. when i try to mess in programs folders it gets into huge mess...
    specially when trying to install torrents and stuff, i need to reboot into safe mode, but heh, i dunno
    no matter what i try to do, i am the only admin and says i don't have permissions stuff, and even if i force it, it will not write...

    No but it was strange.

    I had to go to every folder and delete them

    Like

    Steam => common app => random folder : delete
    Steam => common app : delete
    Steam : delete

    So working well but it didn't want me to delete ALL at once. But ey, I'm done with Steam. Never again.

    I did that :
    1) Games NEEDED Steam
    2) Steam didn't want to load the games where i stored them saying there was an error
    3) There was in a SSD, I wanted to move the games into my HDD, Steam wanted to redownload them all.
    4) Steam was updating everytime i launched it

    So uninstalled it

    5) problem with game folder


    Nope Steam, really huge nope. I'll use them the day that a way to avoid Steam will be available. If not well, bye games.

    Tbh it just sounds like you fucked up and are blaming Steam.
    It's not Steam's fault you're not smart enough for this.

    it's actually very simple. You transfer your steam folder wherever, goto settings > downloads > steam library folders, bam. Steam recognizes wherever your games are. It's not rocket science. They make steam idiot proof for a reason.

    Sad, I laughed too hard on this one.
    Really, I didn't thought about that ! THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME !!! NOT LIKE I TRIED 10 TIMES !!!!


    1) Answered to a post asking me to put them without Steam
    2) Well couldn't remember now, saying it was corrupted or something like that.
    3) Did it yep, got another error saying my disc was locked.
    4) Well, installed Steam. Updated once. Rebooted, updated once again, rebooted another update. Not Validating. REAL UPDATES. Like downloading like 100Mb everytime.
