It has been downloading something at full bandwidth for some time now. And it is just about 50% completed. But nothing is showing on the download tab. So, what is it downloading?

I think if you hover over the Steam icon it will say what it is downloading. – SaintWacko Sep 26 '12 at 13:58

If you cant see it in Downloads on the client, then I normally go to Steam folder, then Steamapps/Common and sort the folders by "Date modified".
