Hi all, I will try to sum this up the fastest way I can. My son is in Afghanistan right now, very little is available to him where he is, some Wifi but cuts in and out a lot. Issue is the hard drive on his 3 month old Hp Envy M6 died. Hp is mailing him a new one as we speak but the problem is he is a gamer and its close to being his whole life. He spent 2 weeks before he deployed downloading games off steam so he would have them in Afghanistan. So since the hard drive died, all his games are lost. He can not download them with the wifi over there as it would take weeks to do just one game. So I am looking for solutions. Can I order a external hard drive and download his games on them and then send him the hard drive? I am a ignorant newb to steam. Someone told me I could download the files that are in his cloud onto the external hard drive and that should work, but geek squad from best buy said no it wouldnt.
Any ideas? The poor kid is just distraut....
