Hi Rushes, thank you! - sanity restored!
Hi BrownEyedTigre, I had only installed the game less than an hour before I discovered all the saves! The only other person in my household is my partner who is not interested in my AGs one bit! (although he will help me with timed puzzles/arcade games etc if I need it!
) The saves are all dated 2007 & as I've had the game for less than a week! - they must have been installed from the game disc. I think Rushes is probably right in that they are there for back-up in case of system crashes which seems a really good idea! but would have been less perplexing if it had been mentioned in the game manual - well, I couldn't find it mentioned!
