    Hey guys, So I recently got a copy of Windows 7 and backed up my old non-legit version of Windows 7 so I wouldn't have to re download everything.

    The reinstall didn't really work but I ignored that and copy & pasted all the stuff I needed over from my old Windows copy to my new one and then disk cleaned it.

    Then I realised that I had not copied MW3 + CS:S from my steam library over, and because I have a capped internet ( 20GB ) I can't afford to redownload these two games. I backed up my hard drive to a Portable hardrive and am looking for the two specific steam files so I can just copy and paste it over, however their are apparently 469 inside the back up so..

    Is their any quicker way to do this apart from opening every 469 zip files and looking inside?


    ^ Thats what my portable hard drives backup folder looks like.
