System Restore & Games

  [DELETED] 15:21 23 May 2006

If ever I needed to do a system restore and re-install all my games, I would have to start at the very beginning of each game. Is there a way to backup to disk the current position I'm at with games? Would copying certain folders do a disk work? Thanks in advance...

depends on the games you play,

most put there save games into the mydocuments folder so you can just copy the folders either to a cd-rom or to a backup drive so when you reinstall the game you can just put the game save folder back into my documents folder.

but best to write where the game save folder was originaly so you know where they should go.

also forgot to mention some websites have 100% game saves that you can download or you could just try cheat codes ;-)

Thanks wolfie3000, I'll give copying the folders a go. I just hope I'll never need to use them!
