I was just cleaning my computer. Trying to get some more memory on. Out of my 150gb I'd used up 145. Now I have 16gb left.
So whilst checking my program files I thought I'd check my Steam folder to see how many gbs it was taking up.

I have 16 games on my steam account however only counterstrike sourceis installed so only one taking up memory.

IT TOOK UP 10.1 GB (10,875,064,320 bytes)!!!!!!!!!
How ridiculous just for counterstrike source.

36 gb nearly all steam games "except orange box" i think more then half are installed. mainly i think the language's are taking more space.

mines is just over 26gb,i have 17 games on the account though so thats not to bad considering.i just deleted all my back ups and got 5gb of space back,i didnt have all the games backed up though just the most important ones but as i can dl them anytime i suppose i dont really need the back ups.

Go to your Steam\steamapps\username\counter-strike source\cstrike\materials\temp folder and remove all the files in there. Will make a fair bit of space if you havent ever done it before.

It's not important stuff, just the sprays that you see on servers. If you have a vtf file extension plugin for photoshop you can look at them.
