launcher removed my prevoius downloaded mods
Assigned, WishlistPublic


launcher removed my previous downloaded mods after that I tried to subscribe a new mod, this action will remove all downloaded mods, just imagine that how this will be horrible when someone subscribe large size mods.
for now launcher seems very unstable and has risk to download largest mods.
log files uploaded.

I found missed downloaded mods here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop

but as they aren't in arma 3 main folder, launcher won't show them.

can you upload also logs from the Steam client? (from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\logs).

From the logs I can see that yesterday (2015-05-06 11:01:10,536) the Launcher received subscription list from Steam with 5 mods and next time it started (2015-05-07 13:49:37,744) the list of subscribed items contained only one mod (FIR AWS).

If you didn't unsubscribed the item downloaded content should be present in Steam cache and therefore there they will not be re-downloaded, but simply restored from Steam cache. If you exit the Launcher and restart Steam client (Exit and start again), do the mods re-appear in the Launcher and are they being downloaded again?

sorry I used ccleaner recently and those logs are gone now.
yes I first use of my steam mod workshop was in 2015-05-06 and I downloaded 5 mods (campaigns) then today when I subscribed and downloaded @FIR AWS mod, I saw all my previous 5 campaign mods are gone from launcher list although they are still checked as subscribed in steam workshop. also I found some of those 5 mod files are still in this directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\107410

although some other are not.

OK, then could you upload this file instead of logs: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\appworkshop_107410.acf".

If you start the Launcher again, does the mods appear in the list?

I start it again but still those subscribed campaigns aren't showing.
maybe unsubscribing and resubscribing them will fix this but you know! it will start to downloading them again, and this issue may happen again too.

as I said in previous comments there were still some mods files in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\107410

I tried to unsubscribe and resubscribe those mods again and they appeared again in launcher without downloading from start. but other mods which are completely gone from that directory, are starting to download again and it's the negative aspect.

so I can describe again that what happened:

1- I just subscribed 5 mods and they downloaded and appeared in launcher as they must, and I even played them.
2- Then I subscribed another mod (@FIR AWS ).
3- After that I saw all previous 5 mods are disappeared from launcher and game directory where they have a folder with starting name by "@mod name".
4- But 2 of those mod still had their pbo files here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\107410
when I resubscribed them through steam they just appeared again in launcher without downloading and they are now in game directory too, although rest of them which weren't in that directory, are starting to download again after resubscribing.

problem is why they just disappeared from launcher and game directory and worse of it why some of them completely deleted with out user permission.
