I opened steam twice on accident without realizing it and it was downloading an update.I canceled one of the download windows and let the other continue, the one I canceled popped up with an "unpacking" status window and I canceled that as well, as it was an incomplete download. I have a feeling it was the cancelling during this unpacking process that caused the issue. I just were waiting until everything will be installed. One thing you could do in case it happens again is just create a hardlink to your common directory.- Go to Device Manager and right click on the AMD graphics driver and select uninstall.
Whenever this scenario occurs Steam is basically unable to download or update anything, which can be extremely annoying.Currently running manjaro(arch) 64 bit with xfce4 wm. I has the same problem than Garciabruno happened to me at least 4 or 5 times after updates. I entered it, it came up with a quick display of "updating information" and BAM all my games wiped.When I launch Steam, it asks me to log in, the when I get to my library nothing was installed and even the non-steam games links were removed. I even tried to backup my game files beforehand, but steam's backup tool kept locking up, so I have no possibility of preventing this.I restarted steam to be sure and it still listed them as not installed, so I went to where they should have been installed (~/.local/share/steam/steamapps/common, or ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common) and sure enough, the entire common folder was missing/deleted, not just unrecognized, but entirely removed. I can confirm this, I was logged out after an update occurred.I did no moving of the game cache or anything like that, I used the default location steam recommended (I have / and /home as two separate partitions). My entire game library was missing, although it still exists in ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps Quick edit: Restarted Steam, asked me to login again and my game library re-appeared. I turn my computer on and lo and behold, steam is asking for my username/password, even though I have it set to keep it.Wait for this to complete and then resume your download.- Removing the Dota 2 files from the downloading folder - *Make sure you pause any downloads before you attempt* To remove the downloaded files that might be causing the game to no longer continue to update/download correctly all you need to do is to open up your steam directory (This is usually defaulted to C:/Program Files/Steam) and open steamapps , downloading and locate any folders associated with the number 570.Not sure what's causing this, after it finished a 7.2mb download it then tried to install a 0 bytes download and it just keeps looping unless I tell Steam to stop updating this game. Needless to say I can't boot the game in it's current state. There's a guide on that here: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_arti... If that doesn't work, maybe try a re-install of Steam and making sure your Steam Client is updated to the latest version. Hey there Bill - best advice is to verify your game cache.Mac OS X is a great platform for gaming (certainly better than many PC users give it credit for).Apple's new Mac range is fast enough to play all the latest games, and its top-end Mac Book Pros and i Macs are amazing gaming machines.
