Team fortress 2 files keep validating Dating sex local hotline
Frag at 0%, Running it in Win 8(VHD) Any way to skip it? S:-It is nowhere related to HDD failing in my case, though it might indicate data corruption in your's, see SMART data. You can try defragmenting the game files in Steam through the Local Files tab of Team Fortress 2's Properties page in the Steam Library, but I found using the OS's defragmentation tool was necessary if I recall. You may need to validate files manually after this, but it should hopefully be the last time.
At the time, there were no bad sectors reported and the hard drive was less than a year old, but fast-forward a year or two and that hard disk died on me so I believe this is a filesystem issue.
So **** it, I'm just going to reinstall the entire game for the FIFTH TIME to see if that changes anything.
I was to do an clean one without the taskbar, but I couldn't get as transparent. If you, for example, you shut down computer with steam turned on, it will not work and will validate cache again. So the game must keep the caches from you equal from the steam servers.
That's definitely not normal, and like someone else said it sounds like your hard drive is either very fragmented or possibly going bad.
I've already tried every other bit of advice I've run into, so what's to lose?
