Transfer Installed steam game files from one PC to another

I will now show you how to transfer installed steam game files from one PC to another.

If you just purchased a game on steam (or want a free game) but does not have bandwidth left to download it & if your friend has got the same game downloaded on his computer, then you can transfer and the game on your computer using steps listed below.


Make sure that you have purchased the game (or it is a free game), then exit steam.


In your friend’s PC also exit steam¬† & navigate to the folder where his steamlibrary is located, by default the steam library folder is ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam’.


Inside the Steam library folder go to ‘steamapps\common’¬† & then locate the game, after doing so copy the desired game folder to your PC via pendrive, hdd or via LAN.



On your PC open your steam library folder and go to ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common’ (or from your steam libray location ‘SteamLibrary\steamapps\common’) then transfer the game folder to there.


Now open steam and go to library, find your game and click install(in case of a free game search the game on store and click install).

It will now verify the files and after verification your game will be installed and ready to play.
