everytime, wheter I just go into the main menu of the game or playing couple of hours, once I exit the game steam starts syncing.
the sync takes about 20-30 minutes with arround 350kb/s. it does it everytime. its kinda frustrating.

am I doing something wrong?

I disabled the Steam sync the moment they started it. Nothing but an aggravation to me. You don't need it unless you are playing on more than one pc.

@daventry

check the tabs on the top of steam.. press on Steam -> Properties -> Downloads & Cloud then uncheck the cloud option for all games.
enjoy

I was just about to post this topic. My Steam syncs every time I exit to desktop. Most of the time it only takes a min or 2, but it's very annoying. It also seems to keep the CK from opening. Glad to know it can be turned off.

Mine syncs every time I exit the game, but it only takes a minute or so at most.

Thanks for this. Turning if off today. No more CK opening delay. And no more having to move all but 10 saves to another folder to avoid 5 minute sync times. So handy to know. Thanks.
