What will happen to unfinished achievements when I uninstall?
I want to temporarly uninstall HL2 to make some space on my hard drive. Before that, I want to know what will happen to my Lambda Locations achievement, which I have completed in about 70% (I've never had more :). So: this score will be erased, or is it really kept somewhere in the cloud safe?

Well, I have not a sure answer to you, this it's only my own experience. Maybe, now, after the updates, wont happend to you, but, I had a long time ago an achievement like you in portal 1. And, I uninstalled portal and I found that achievement of mine resetted when I reinstalled it.

But, usually, when I have reinstalled some game for diferents reasons, I hadn't see any changes on the achievements. I mean, I think that maybe wont happend anything, but... that kind of archievements where you must reach something like the lambda locations "12/14", maybe, under my own experience, could be resetted if you uninstall it. But, I am not compleatly sure. Do it, under your own risk.

Well, I just completed the achievement with tutorial by now... The question will remain unanswered, I guess :)

For Steam you have to online with Steam to have them count on your community profile. Achievements are recorded in two places. Within your actual game itself using a file on your computer, and in your Steam Community Profile.

Well, theoretically, yes. But I couldn't count how many times there was somethig wrong with the achievements system in the game. That's why I was asking :)
