How to Fix TF2 Steam Inventory Not Available at This Time

To fix the Steam Inventory Not Available at This Time error in TF2 or Team Fortress 2, you need to follow a couple of relatively easy steps. The first thing you should do is fully exit Steam and every game that you might have open at the moment. Next, go into the Steam installation folder. It’s at C:\Program Files\Steam by default, but maybe you have it installed somewhere else. Anyways, once you’re inside the folder, delete everything except the folder called “steamapps.” That’s where your games usually go, so you don’t want to get rid of that one. Now, restart your computer. Once that’s over, launch Steam from the installation folder instead of a shortcut.

And there you go, that’s how you can fix the TF2 Steam Inventory Not Available at This Time error if you encounter it in Team Fortress 2. After you launch the app from the folder as we’ve discussed, Steam will automatically download every file it’s missing. In this case, it will be everything except the contents of the “steamapps” folder. That includes the offending inventory. It will take a while for Steam to download everything, so be patient. Another drawback of this fix is that it’s unfortunately somewhat temporary. By that, I mean you might experience the error again at some point in the future. Maybe Valve will get rid of it at some point; you can only hope.
