Any data that you don't have more than two copies of is disposable data.
Back yo chit up. Custom folders, files, saves, w/e

With Steam Cloud you really shouldn't have to, but anything you add or modify I would back up

Solution
Steam \ steamapps \ common \ Half-Life 2 \ hl2 \ custom \ <create a new folder here> \ models
You can call this new folder whatever you want.

Most of the assets of the game are now stored in several VPK files. You need GCFScape installed to open these files. You can find them here: Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ Half-Life 2 \ hl2

You should open only the ones ending in "_dir" Like:
hl2_misc_dir.vpk
hl2_pak_dir.vpk
hl2_textures_dir.vpk

Once you open a VPK you can extract the files inside by draging them to a folder in you hard drive.
