Windows 7: COD4 profile backup

The only time I have seen any player info in that location on W7...is when I was farting around w/ the compatibility settings, and I changed them to simulate XP. Mine's set to simulate Vista and it saves it in that other location.

Please dont forget the most important step... Backup your serial key if you want to play it online, or your data will be lost since your XP online is associated with that serial you normally use.

This is the correct folder. I do this all the time with wiping and reinstalling. This is all you need. Just copy from the players folder, not the profiles. Voila, 100% configuration and game data saved. Nothing is worse than loosing your legitimate Rank 55 and challenges...not to mention the weapon unlocks!

Like Csanino my profile is hidden away in the AppData folder. You saved me a great deal of time looking for it (the search function in Windows wan't much help at all).

You can back it up by going in to your documents then finding where the cod 4 save folder is then copy it wen you reinstall it on the new OP system just make the same user name again in the same way it was spelt word for word exit game then copy over the backed up data in to the documents folder where the game is saved and it should work fine hope this helps.

64 bit vs 32 bit

In windows 7, the reason it has it in strange places and sometimes it doest is because 64 bit mucks everything up, hence the virtual store rubbish. 32 bit keeps everything (mainly) in the right spot, the reason I know this is because I (mistakenly) installed both bit types on different comps lol and it gets soo annoying trying to find stuff.
