Hi Draclvr smile

Following on from my post re Cold Case Summer saved games on the Hints & Help Board ....

As you install all your games to D Drive, as I do, how do you get the saves to stay on D Drive too think

I can't see a way to do that.

[But then you know me and techie stuff !! lol]

I have a feeling it all depends on how the game is set up to save games. On all the ones I've installed on my D drive, all of them put the saved games in the game folder that was created on the D drive. I'd have to boot up my Window 7 to check, but I have dozens of games installed there.

You must have gotten one that put the saved games in the User profile. They also go in some other odd places like a couple of hidden folders on the C drive. I haven't had any of those though.

Hi smile

Yes, I've found several saves lurking in hidden folders on C Drive so I regularly check for them there shocked

Since getting Win7 I've installed and played quite a few games in D Drive but with only ONE of them (Secret Files 3) did the saves actually stay in the game folder itself frown

So why don't mine if yours do ?? laugh

Good question! I'll boot up my Windows 7 tomorrow and do some looking around.

Well, I found that only one game had put saved games on the C drive - that was Amnesia The Dark Descent which was a download from Steam. All my other games - which I installed to the D drive during installation - have saved games in the game folder. As usual, there were a couple of casual games which had saved games to the hidden file App Data/Roaming, but I check there all the time. I think that's only the second time I've found anything there - they were two of the Rose Briar HOGS from Big Fish.

So, I guess it probably depends on the game. One of the prices to pay for a speedy solid state drive is an extra drive to search!

Hi - And thanks for looking on your Win7 smile

Every one of my BigFish games, although installed to D, has the save games In C.

I suppose I'll just have to live with things as they are, then !! wink

Thanks again.
