    I want to backup Portal 2 from my Steam on desktop to copy it on my Steam on laptop. Since I've got only a 16GB pendrive do you think the backup will fit on it?

    (I might be mistaken but if I recall correctly the whole Portal 2 game was a 15GB download?)

    Thanks

    10130 MB compressed with steam.


    its unlikely to compress-able much more then that and i dont think OP needs it to be, but ill have a quick look at what is possible.


    EDIT:
    well what do you know, compressed further to a total size of 6.1GB!

    you could get another 5% or so more with heavy compression but its not worth the time.
