    Found that issue today's morning. Steam now is downloading all workshop content again but yesterday everything was fine and I didn't requested anything like this.

    What causes this issue and how can I solve it without downloading again all items which I've subscribed?

    have you checked to see if the steam package folder was empty?
    something like "....Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\36596"

    If thats empty or missing some workshop content it will download it. but cant say why it would have become empthy if so.

    No, it's not empty and contains 80 Gb of content right now
    But Steam still wanted me to download everything again :/

    I had the same thing happen to me on the 4th August, 209 items redownloaded took for ever. Really don't understand why this should happen.

    This may be related to Steam because Steam behaves strangely with other games as well - they start the same way as the first time with the need to accept the EULA terms and install additional software

    yes, here lately download a small file (92kb) of EuroTruckSim all days and since the beginning of August I have never been able to start rF2 by clicking the icon in my library, I always have to open the options and start from the menu. Also when I go back to the library (errors in the development of a conversion) the Steam screen stays black and I have to force close and restart Steam
