I want to reformat my computer Because it sucks. My question is when you reformat the computer. The dota 2 is deleted. Can I save the dota2 on my USB? what happen if i save the steam and dota2 on my USB and after reformatting my computer and I put this on my PC again. Does it still work or not?

Sorry for my english hope you Understand wrong :))

Ofc you can redownload it if you have a pass to your steam account. All your games are binded to your steam account.

And if you don't want to waste traffic - make a L-backup of your game. Then simply restore your game from backup after you clean up you hdd.

Backup your steamapps folder before formatting your PC.
It is located here [C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps]

After reinstalling your Steam client, just replace your fresh steamapps with the previous one.

@8 local backup maybe??

you can backup your dota 2 by right clicking on ur game and press back up game files. Then copy the games to your USB or external hard disk. After you reformatted your PC, press steam > back up and restore games.
