Game Backups not working?
Hi all recently had HDD failure, i had a copy of my steamapps folder from a previous install and after getting set back up and copying it over no games will launch, i get the Preparing to start message then it goes away as quick as it popped up and nothing happens.
Terminal output states permission denied,
I have tried chown -R "username" "steamdirrectory"
this gives me no output and returns to command line.
Running Manjaro x64
I7 3770k
32gig ram
2xGTx 670's
I deleted some of the smaller games like dynamite jack and downloaded them and they launch fine.

Probably binaries have no executable flags set.

Did you try to verfy the integrity of the game cache? I´ve had the same problem though, without any succes of getting backed up games to work.

Yea tried everything that google could find lol, redownloading now just seems a waste of 150gb of bandwidth

Did you actually verified the game's cache? Might be the case of some files that are missing. Verify the game's cache and try to back it's data again.

Just out of curiosity, are you in the 'sudo' group? And do other games actually backup? I could be wrong but I think that after you mess with some folder with the root account the permissions of that folder change to only the root account. What Desktop Environment are you running (KDE, GNOME, XFCE, Cinnamon etc)
