Games on Steam deleting themselves

Hello there,

I have come back on Steam to find that most of my game require an update despite being many years old, when I do the update I am getting 1gb files downloaded for no reason. Why is this happening, is my hard drive corrupting?

All these games are on my SSD and samsung magician says that the disk is good.

This has happened once before with my call of duty games which now installs nothing when I go to update it.

Well, I doubt it is anything hardware related. Try verifying the integrity of the game cache (right click on the game in your library>properties>local files) and see if that helps. If not, you can try uninstalling it (right click on the game>delete local content). If none of that works, you can backing up your games (Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common) and uninstalling/reinstalling steam (just move the game folders back in after it's reinstalled). If none of that helps, here's a couple links that might:

Good luck.

That's the problem, it seems like the games are verifying themselves and finding 1.9GB missing for no reason.

GabeN works in mysterious ways? Seriously though are they well made ssd's because they could be losing integrity otherwise and storage checkers can sometimes miss faults like that. Good luck

In steam, the games are not yours - even when you buy them. Steam can remove, modify your steam libs at their own accord without your consent.

I've never seen anyone complain about a game being kept up to date, but if you don't want updates change your steam settings to reflect that. If it's a multi-player and fails to launch you'll know why. Some games, if you make back-up copies via steam, it will only copy a set bulk package and requires a download in order to finish. I have never encountered an error using steam back up, but have had sizeable dl's to complete the reinstallation process. This is all assuming that you know you can't just cut and paste game directories as a back up method.
