Ok, someone posted a tip to backup the entire users folder to backup their key command settings. I did that this afternoon. Then, tonight, I screwed and followed their tip, restoring my users folder. Now, all of my careers are gone. Kaput!!!

However, I made a Ghost backup this afternoon. So, can someone please tell me what files I need to restore to get my Careers back????

Hope someone how knows what their doneing can help me!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Not quite sure which files but I did have a similar accident (A couple of times actually - my bad). I found using XP system restore set everthing straight.

Good Luck.....

Aswell as the "User" directory, which stores settings for each pilot, the Missions/Campaign directory holds files relevent to each country. When you begin a campaign, a new folder is created in the directory of which ever country you're flying for. Eg. If flying for RAAF, a new folder is created in Missions/Campaign/RA directory. This is needed in conjunction with the folder for your pilot in the User directory. Hope that makes sense. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

If you have XP, a simple system restore will do the trick.

Also, Forum guidelines limit avatars to 40kb. Please keep that in mind when making a selection.

Thanks guys, I forgot about the System Restore. I've used it in the past for stuff like this. But this time I had made other changes to files on my system and didn't want to lose them.

Luckily, I did a Ghost Image Backup of my system yesterday afternoon, and I could just restore the IL2/PF folder only, which has worked out great.

Thanks again...
