Steam is one of the best places to find out all the popular and awesome games of the world. It allows downloading & updating the game instantly. Steam also enables easy game management. That’s why all the biggest and best games are always on Steam. Thankfully, for Linux users & gamers, Steam is also available. In fact, there are some of the best games out there for this platform.

We already discussed how to move a Steam game from one folder to another. Today, let’s take a look how to take backup of Steam games. The steps are same for both Windows and Linux.

The step-by-step guide

  • Open Steam.
  • Go to Library >> Games.

 

  • You’ll see the list of all the installed games on the left panel. Select the games you want to make a backup.

  • Right-click and select “Backup Game Files”.

  • Click “Next”.

  • Select the directory where you want to backup your game.

  • Enter a backup file name. I recommend leaving the option of “File Size” to “CD [640 MB]”. It’s only a measure of splitting the compressed game archive.

Just wait until the game(s) are backed up.

For Linux usres, there’s another tool named “SLSK”. It allows easier management & backup facility for Linux platform. You need to build it from the source. Check out the complete instruction on installing Steam Linux Swiss Knife.

Enjoy!
