Profile Backup


Recommended Posts

If using Windows XP see sample path below ('Show Hidden Files and folders' must be enabled to see the Application Data folder):


C:\Documents and Settings\your_username\Local Settings\Application Data\Activision\CoDWaW\players\profiles

Replace 'your_username' with the username used to log into your computer.

I didnt have a problem placing my beta profile on another computer. When I installed the game it loaded up my profiles (my usernames only, not my stats which were at 0). I just placed the info from on computer to the next with 0 problems.


again its just like cod4. You can make a profile backup (copy and paste somewhere) as long as you put it in the same spot.

Should be the same as Vista.


Simply head into your game's install folder, and save the players folder to a floppy, thumb-drive, your cell-phone, or what-ever medium of back-up you so desire. Then replace it once you've formatted.

again I would do it manually, you don't know whats in those programs (could be a key stealer)




+1 I agree


If you want to back up just copy & paste it to another location easy as!. its worked fine for me on a reinstall & if your doing an OS install put it on a external sorce then just put back in (C /username/ app data / local / Activison / CODWAW / players / profile (replace)[vista] {need to show hiden files & folders....-> in your folder options}
