I'm well known for groan inducing puns and rectangular hyperbole.

My name means 'easily accessible' in a dead language called Sanskrit. Whether it's an accurate description of me is up to critics. Given that I have critics, of course.

@Manu There was, at least when this answer was written. Are you sure you are using the correct directory name (<game_name> in the answer)?

comment How to get Steam to recognize existing game files from a different source?
@ColinD If I started the download from scratch, it wanted to download 17 GB, and I know it has downloaded only 9.8 GB using this method. I also noticed that after the "discovering" stage was over, the common\* folder was reduced to around 7 GB, presumably by removing the files that don't match. The final folder size is 18.6 GB. It didn't keep the saves, probably since the Steam saves are kept somewhat differently than the retail version (I didn't need it to anyway, since I was did a fresh playthrough for the Steam achievements).
