Keep steam games

So upgrading OS etc long story short I have to wipe my hard drive but I kinda dont wanna have to re download every single steam game I have (I own around 50) is there anyway I can keep my steam games on an portable hard drive or something?

Not sure what that even does all I understand that it copies my game on my hard drive

It's a tool that lets you backup and restore games, pretty self explanatory really. Just select the games you want to back up, press next, click BROWSE and choose a folder (obviously that should be in an external hard drive or a USB flash drive, not the default c:). Once you've installed your new OS download Steam, select Restore a previus backup and choose the folder you've put your backups in.
