Hi Benargee,

this is not a bug, this is a design issue:
The disable update feature is meant to give you control over updates for critical addons. We don't consider a non-existing file to be a state worth preserving - this misses a point of an update breaking anything because when the file is not there, there is nothing to break.

What are you trying to accomplish?
(If you want to just postpone all downloads, you can pause the download manually in the Steam Client.)


I'm closing this issue, because it's been without a reply for a few months now and check-box in question doesn't even exist anymore.
Please feel free to create a new issue or reopen this one when you feel it's necessary.
