    Logged onto Steam this afternoon and my Fallout 4 was no longer installed...

    Starting download... hoping I haven't lost 111 hours of game play.

    I "installed" again. It recognized the existing game files and played ok.

    Thankfully. Now go back up a copy just in case.

    This happened to my version as well. Every time I try to start the game from steam or from the launcher, it brings up the install prompt, but if I launch the game from it's exe or from the Fallout 4 Configuration Tool, it works just fine.
