Just wondering if there is any way to back those downloads up, so you need not download them again when you get a new PC or want to replay something you've removed.

I'm really loving Steam. I'm downloading all these great games because they keep putting them on sale! But hard drive space isn't infinite! And then there's those damn data caps our service providers hit us with.

Yes. There's an option in Steam if you right click on the game to create a local back up.

Alternatively, just copy the "SteamApps" folder somewhere.
