I recently downloaded a game on Steam (no more room in hell) and during the downloading it was interrupted due to a power outage. power was restored in a few minutes so I went back to Steam to try and redownload the game but it says that I can't. so I deleted the game off of my laptop and tried to download it again but it says that I already own the game and that it is in my game library; however when I checked my game library it wasnt there.

I restarted Steam and checked it again but it still didn't work. How do I redownload a game through Steam?

    Have you tried deleting the client.blob file? (Make a back-up first, just in case) Commented Oct 1, 2014 at 1:01
  • @slow_excellence The client.blob is not used anymore since Steam updated their download technology. Anyway, OP, do you maybe have a filter on in your steam library? Make sure it is set to "Games" and not "installed" or something else. It should be there. If not, contact steam support.

    Try verifying game cache.

There should be Play Now button under the xxx is already in your Steam library in store page of the game. If the game is not installed on your computer, download screen should appear after clicking Play Now.

I don't own that particular game but let me show you with some other game. (which also is my favourite one)

play now button

After you cick that Play Now button, following screen should appear and you can install your game by clicking next etc..

install screen


You can try to do a "repair" on the game by either:

  • clicking the "Delete local game content" and then trying to re-download the game OR
  • clicking "Verify integrity of game cache" with the expectation that Steam should re-download any missing or corrupted files.

You can find these options by:

  1. Right-clicking the game
  2. Going to Properties
  3. Going to the Local File tab
