Like a fool I went from the beta version of Windows 8.1 to the full version. It claimed I wouldn't need to reinstall programs, just apps, however that was not the case. Basically, I had a Steam directory for games on my OS drive, and another on my storage drive where I played most of my games from. How can I get it to recognize that second directory again?

Was it symlinked or an actual separate install directory?

Honestly I don't recall. I did some googling about how to restore mine and found a guide on setting up w. symlink. Pretty sure that's not how I did it originally.

Doesnt seem to be detecting any of the games in that folder. If I click install it begins to download the game.

It should only download for a few seconds unless there is a legitimate update. Try verifying the integrity of the game cache if you can.

Nope it's redownloading the whole game. Doesn't allow me to verify integrity, as it seems to not be detecting the game folders :/

Did you restart steam after adding the directory?
