hi, i just got another computer for gaming and was wondering if i can transfer dota 2 to the other pc by copying the steamapps folder from my old pc directly? i tried backup and restore and it wont load a thing when i do backup. thanks!

just copy steam apps folder in a external drive or flash drive with at least 8gb memory... then install steam in the new computer and paste it while steam is updating.. or just copy paste it. then its done.. if you want your old accounts to be remembered, copy the whole steam folder, then after u install steam, cancel update and paste the whole steam with steam apps in the installation path.. hope it helps..

No need to even install it, copy the entire Steam folder to new computer and make a link to steam.exe :P
