I'm planning to do a full format of my system this month in order to install Linux for programming purposes.
But I have 4 games installed, Skyrim from Steam and Mass Effect from Origin. Both of them with every DLC I could afford.
All my stuff, since always, are in another partition and all the paths properly adjusted in both DRM Managers.
Despite the Saved Games which I have to backup manually, I would like to know if this is enough to preserve the games' files themselves without download them again.
My main concern is about Mass Effect Trilogy (~40GB). I have a 10MB connection link and from Steam I can download at 800~1200kbps, so Skyrim (~11GB) wouldn't be a problem. But Origin is extremely slow, downloading from 50~300kbps.
Thank you in advance.
