I find myself with a mild conundrum. My partition for games-playing has about 70GB of space, and its size cannot (easily) be changed. It is currently almost totally full. I want to uninstall the large Steam games so I can install others. However, I'm bandwidth-capped and have slow internet, so the idea of redownloading all of them- like 15+ GB of Dragon Age- is horrifying. (It took me days the first time!) Is there a way of backing up all the game data to an external so that when I want to play them again it's more a case of copying over rather than redownloading? It's Windows 7, if that affects things any.
