I want to wipe my harddrive , reinstall windows and delete my program files . Is there any way I can save my games , so that when I reinstall them I can start where I left ? Are there save files that I can move over to my other Harddrive , or burn to disc ?

What is the game or games that you want to save? Some games do not let you but most do. Like I just had to reinstall Bioshock the other day and I found a saved games folder in a different location under "my documents". You can probibly to a quick seach on Google and find out where the saved games are specificy saved to.

Let me know how everything turns out.

Oblivion , Crysis , and GTA San Andreas . All 3 games have files left in the documents folder . Oblivion and crysis with save files .

copying and putting those files back in my documents folder after a wipe will keep my game saves ?
