As the title states it, the restoration process (The Witcher) stops at disk 1 and doesn't ask for disk 2 or 3. Only 4.7 GB is restored and I have to download the rest (~6 GB).

How can I make it work ?

Did you do the backup to disk yourself? If so, I would copy all the backup files to 3 folders (Disk 1, Disk 2, and Disk 3, which I think are the same names Steam uses) on your hard drive. I don't know if that's the actual solution which is why I'm not posting as an answer. – MBraedley Aug 29 '13 at 18:30
It worked, thanks a bunch. – Poster Aug 29 '13 at 18:47
Okay, I'll post as an answer then. Don't forget to accept it. – MBraedley Aug 29 '13 at 19:01

Copy the contents of each disk to a folder on your hard drive named Disk X where X is the disk number, and then perform the restoration. I would suggest that you have only these folders in a parent folder, but that might not be totally necessary. It seems that Steam isn't smart enough to ask you to insert the next disk.
