Knowing your OS would be nice. You also don't mention what exactly you
want to have backed up. From my point of view, you only need to save
your ~/.ut2004 directory.

Ah, a backup of the disk... I thought about backing up your downloaded
files, settings, single-player progress, etc.

Auch... IIRC Epic can send you replacement CDs for less than the
original purchase cost.

You might find http://www.unrealtower.org/faq/40 interesting. It's
about UT2003, but it might also work on UT2004. Also note you still
didn't mention which OS you're talking about, even though I asked you.

Please, next time, think about the way you post. Many people don't
think about this and put their reply at the top of their post, quoting
all of the original post below it. Now take a look at this:

In the English speaking world we read left to right, top to bottom.

If people do it the other way around, things will clear up instantly:

The best response type is "in-line" posting, that is, remove all the
quoted text that does not apply to your response, adding your comments
in context underneath as you go.

The distributed nature of Usenet is causing that not everyone sees all
posts in a particular thread in the right order or or even at all. If
you make sure you put your reply in a top-to-bottom order, people will
be able to easily read through it from top to bottom.

Be sure to remove all excess quoted text though. There is nothing more
annoying than having to scroll down three pages of quoted text you
already read, just to read a two-lined reply ;-)

The latest patch negates the need for the CD to be in the drive during
play.

The best way is to just rar the whole folder. You'll need all your files
in texture, sound, static meshes, music and system folders. If you need
you cache then you might as well want to add it to the list too. UT
files compress very good but it takes time. I compressed 8GB of UT2003
maps to a 1.2GB rar file.
