Sharing Games and then Buying the game.
I'm using a shared version of Skyrim and I wanted to buy the game for myself since when the owner is playing, I can't play. However, when you get a shared game you'll either get a completely new one without the owner's profile, or one with the owner's profile. I got the one without, and if I buy a copy, will I get my file? Reply soon plz! Thx!

I assume that you are using the share games at the present. When you buy a new version of it, you have to download your version of it, (btw, it will take a while) and you will no longer be associated with your friends copy. No ties, so you can play 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while he does the same. Do it while the quakecom sale is on.

Ok, but I'll have the profile or not?

Also, I was going to do the Quakecom sale thing, that's why I was asking. XD

If you buy Skyrim it is bound to your account. There is no profile. What I assume you are concerned about are your saves. Those are saved on your PC and they should not be affected.

Family sharing perhaps! One feature of steam.
