    Hey,

    yes, it is possible. If you deleted some files of your game folder, Steam will re-download these files. I don't know if it also re-downloads files if they were just modified. (same file name, but other filesize)

    Right click on the game and go to properties and there is a restore game cache option which will sort your files.

    Yup, as Paul says, under properties > local files > Verify Integrity of local Game Cache

    @SoTD I think it does re-download modded files if I remember correctly. I think I did mod some game's .ini file (COD Black Ops maybe), and had to set the file to 'read only' to stop steam overwriting it.

    You don't need to redownload anything if it works the same as with Race 07 and Steam. Delete the F1 2011 subfolder completely and restart steam.

    Firing up the game will unpack all the files again without you having to spend any time downloading the files.
