If you are having trouble deleting badges from the Steam Cloud

I wrote a handy Steam guide to walk people through the process of deleting these files from your Steam Cloud.

I think we should probably move the badges out to a separate folder so that these just never get backed up to the Steam Cloud in the first place.

See badges is actually something I’d like to keep synched, especially for the ones I like using. Can we have a separate folder for downloaded ones and ones you use get copied to the personal one?

That way only ones I’ve used get synced

I think you might have a more complete grasp on things after reading this thread:

In part because I go into exhausting detail figuring out how it works and why.

Notably, in that thread, it’s pointed out that we already do have a non-Cloud-sync’d directory that Badges can be read from.

Nothing in there is ever sync’d. Only the contents of Profiles is (and everything in there gets sync’d).
