Steam converting to new efficient format?
So I started up Skyrim and I get this message saying that steam needs to convert the game content to a new efficient format. After a few minutes it finishes but now it seems that steam is re-downlaoding the entire game. Has anyone else experienced this and should I be concerned about my saved files?

The game works for me fine, except the crash I described in my thread, but that first happened to me a month ago.

What and where? I didnt even get this efficiency thing at all. I have mods from Japan and lots of others running and not having thi shappen to me at all. Was this an auto update for you guys? Do you all have win8? Are you using ENB or SKSE or that script dragon thing? Whats happening? I had steam open all afternoon and all night... nothing, so I'm both scared and confused.
