Steam issue - do not backup STO through steam!
 
I tried to backup my sto install using the steam backup feature to a external hard drive and it failed, and deleted the install folder, it is now redownloading the game. I already reinstalled the game once this month, my internet cap is small compared to others on here... REALLY not impressed.

Even recopying the STO folder into the steamapps folder where steam had STO installed did not fix it. It is still redownloading and installing the game (all 10 GB worth :( ).

I am not sure why it didn't work this time, it worked when i moved the game to be used through steam a year ago...
