Hi all;
i need to format my pc but before i do i would like to backup my copy of Wolfenstein so that i can resume my game when i re-install it. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks heaps.

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.

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