Question about Steam and games

So, I am wondering WTF is taking up so much hard drive space so I run dirtree and find out that Steam and games are taking up nearly 20 gigs...games are Team Fortress 2, Left4Dead2, and Garry's Mod....anyone know how I can reduce the bloat without screwing up the games? Seems there are about 4 user accounts as well, but I have no clue which data is safe to delete etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

If 20 gig worth of games is too much for you then you are using a small hard drive.

get a 500 gig or a 1 ter one.

Yes, my main sata drive is only 200 gig and damn near full, plus have another 200 gig IDE and another 120 gig sata. Was going to buy a 500 gig sata for my birthday, but my sata ports are acting like assholes of late so they don't deserve a bigger drive. Would not dream of doing terabyte.

keep in mind that you can buy Sata or IDE enclosure and turn those two into external hard drive.

Sure, don't even really need an enclosure, but with the sata ports playing musical chairs, would have to look at perhaps (gag) a USB-type hard drive.

not a huge deal, could always just make the kids share their machine and kick their arses off mine!

There's no way to compress that game data other than uninstalling some of the games.

That being said, why do your kids only get 20 gigs for Steam games...? What the fuck, mom. What the fuck.

What are you using the other 380 gigs for? Porn?
