    Why the fuck does 90% of PC games store their saves in secret folders buried in your Windows installation? This shit ate the spare room right out of my Windows partition, and complicates the hell out of life if you reinstall your OS. What happened to storing Save Games inside the games fucking installation folder like they used to? THAT MADE SENSE!


    I feel better now. Don't judge me!

      Yeah, I often wonder this, too. Not only is it stored in a long nest of folders, but some of the folders are even hidden, forcing you to check "Show Hidden Files" in your folder options (which most people don't know where to find).

      Also, why do all the folders in windows have to look alike? Can't they have different colors depending on how new or old they are? This would make looking for your newly installed game, your newest save, and your most recently added files a hell of a lot easier.

      Maybe Windows 8 will have something similar.

      It's not an answer to your question, but it may help. Next time you have to reinstall Windows and you want to keep your save games, use Windows Easy Transfer. It'll copy all that sort of shit for you, along with whatever other shit you tell it to. It's quite a handy tool.

      It is because of write access to the installation folder. You can not write to an arbitrary folder(only user folder) unless you are an administrator.
