I plan on resetting my pc since it's begun to get slow again, so I was wondering the best way to save some steam games so that I don't have to redownload them. I don't have access to an external harddrive at the moment, so is there any other way I could do so? I know I could compress all the games, but would it be enough to save it online until after it resets?

Just compress the folders of the games that you want to keep (Steam\steamapps\common\) and then upload to mega or something.

Yes because finding are other ways isn't an option, right?

I know of the other ways, but I tend to like to reset so this way I can start it out fresh.  :noh:
