View Full Version : Downloading two 7Gb updates, again?!

I left Steam to download the L4D2 and Add-On Support updates (both being around 7Gb each) overnight. They were downloaded and the game was ready to play. I jump on to play it today and find that the two very same updates are being downloaded again.

Add-On Support no longer needed, read the update log
"Removed need for Left 4 Dead 2 Add-on Support for Community Campaigns"

Otay. So how do I cancel the update from Steam Downloads? And why do I have to download the L4D2 update again?

This happened to me, too.
I was like, omg.. 7 Gb AGAIN?

These dudes are messing it up real bad. I mean, everytime they discover something wrong with L4D2 we'll have to download it all over again. This blows.

In the past this has shown a huge download, only to say "Download Complete" very soon afterwards.

Now say with me "I must remember to back up my files. I must remember to back up my files. I must remember....." ;)

I don't know why some have to download huge updates, but when L4d2 updates on my system, it's never in the Gig range. It's in the 100's Megs range, maybe even lower, in that it takes minutes to update, not hours/days.
