    Full backup - put the whole directory tree in a safe place

    Incremental backup - put everything with a modification time after the install date in a safe place

    Be careful with a full back up.
    I tried the same thing but when I reinstalled I made the mistake of putting the backed up foler in place first. The installer then overwrote the entire directory, erasing all the save games

    I think you would be safe in just copying the save directory.

    Main/save directory in your wolfenstein install.
    Prove you can code in C++ or C# at TopCoder, referrer rrenaud

    Only M$ is stupid enough to store everything a program needs in the registry (cough msn messenger cough)
