Windows 7: rFactor file locations, Win 7 pro 64bit

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
rFactor file locations, Win 7 pro 64bit

I'm new to Windows 7, I was bought the OS for Christmas (Pro 64bit) and it's fantastic apart from one thing. I play rFactor (v1.25) and it works perfectly, installed no problem, full compatability and other than the file location of program files (x86) instead of program files on XP for the addons & patches I have had no problems... Until I went to set up my player profile and install my track setups. I don't exist! But rFactor finds the player profile of Chris when in game but no such folder on hard drive and no joy searching either. Is there a "secret" location Windows 7 sets up. I am set as the administrator, it allows me to move files onto main drive, but this is beginning to grate now. Please help me!

On Windows 7 your profile is located at %userprofile% ... just type that in to explorer's address bar to see what it expands to.

Sorry, when I said about player profile I meant in the game not Windows.

Without rambling on again, I just wondered if Windows 7 has a completely different file structure to XP when it comes to storing data.

Thank you though
