    Okay, I need help. I have two computers - one desktop and one laptop. I have Resident Evil 6 fully installed on my desktop, and I want to install it on my laptop. Because I have it already downloaded and installed on my desktop, I figure I could skip two hours of downloading the game via the internet, and just copy the 14GB+ folder onto my laptop and then have Steam find and validate those files and then let me play that way. ...except Steam isn't finding the files. After I successfully copied the file (to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Resident Evil 6), Steam goes through the trouble of seeing that there's content there ("Discovering preexisting content..."), then goes to allocating space, then...attempts to download the entire game. That was my first attempt. After many issues, I deleted the folder, and copied it again, and three minutes ago, started the download at 1.2GB/14.1GB. Why did it start there? What am I doing wrong? Help.

    That should work. So many things that can be the problem though... Correct folder? Copied all files? Huge update the desktop didn't have installed yet? Some type of DRM?

    Have you tried creating a new Steam library folder and copying the game there?
    There's also a 'Clear download cache' button on the library settings tab, maybe that thing helps.
