Steam always validating tf2

I was simply recounting an anecdote of my personal experience, trying to help solve a problem and noting an observation of a possibility that could potentially help prevent a problem. I get the some problem when I try to run games that I store on my ext3 drive (accessed via 3rd party driver), indicating that Steam seems to make quite low level system calls to check files.

You will just have to deal with it till Steam updates to deal with the new FS specs. My suggestilon would be to try deleting the TF2 game cache and start again.

Do what you will with [email protected] To Hell I didn't say it is and I'm glad to hear your HDD is running well.

As I said, the HDD of mine that this happened on failed within 2 years and so this problem may be an indicator of a larger problem.

Also you don't need to redownload the games as the files are in the files which you don't need to delete, just the folder containing extraced game files. Not too sure what you mean by deleting or renaming the game folder.

Yes, that annoying Validating Steam cache files message pop-ups up each time you launch Team Fortress 2 or Counter Strike Source from a cold boot (meaning you haven’t launched the game since your PC started up).

GCF is a file format used by various Source games which essentially acts as a virtual hard disk for content; this file can suffer from internal fragmentation as files get changed and deleted, and this is the only kind of fragmentation Steam concerns itself with.

The OS only deals with actual HDD fragmentation, which Steam has no knowledge about - for that to play a role, Steam would have to test file access times, which seems highly [email protected] Madsen Just because Steam has no knowledge of a problem does not mean the problem doesn't affect Steam and its decision to validate files.

i have tried moving all the server files to another folder, and then run it so that it will re-download only the original files without any mods, but it's the same problem.
