I am going to change my hardrive and install windows 7. But, I am wondering when I change install Windows, Do I lose all my local games saves such as Crysis or Bad company 2? Is there someway to transfer them to my new Windows?
Typically, the saved game files are either in your 'my documents/NAME OF GAME/saved games/', or the directory where the game was installed, and usually they are in a 'Saved Games' folder. You can do a quick search in at the top of that directory for 'save' and something should come up. Once you locate them just copy and paste 'em to a flash drive, reinstall your games in win7, and paste them back into the directory. Oh, and these files are pretty tiny in size too.
