DOOM 3 BFG Edtion Steam Backup
Anyone have any problems doing a steam backup of this game? I've recently clean install my windows 8, and then found out that my bfg edition backup doesnt have the steambackup.exe, just sku.sis and other 208201_depotcache_x.csd /csm files.

This has resulted me to redownload the bfg edition, which waste a lot of my bandwidth. Tried backup and still the same result. Please help.

Under the main Steam menu, select Backup and Restore Games. I'm not sure if they recently changed how the backups work, but all my backups no longer have the steambackup.exe file either. As a test I backed-up a game, deleted the local files, and then restored it using the main menu and it restored my game just fine.

Thanks, you've made my day and saved my bandwidth. I see what they are doing, most probably they changed that to unify all three platforms (Windows/Mac/Linux) as exe is exclusive to Windows.

Steam backup is flaky. If you want to back up the game it's better to copy its folder in steamapps\common directory.
