Urgent help please!
I am going to format my laptop in a bit, and i want to know how to i back up my FM data and hall of fame stats. Please someone help me ASAP.
Easiest way, is to make a copy (on an external disk, memory stick, cd, etc...) of the following folder:
<user>/My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012
Then simply replace that folder once you've re-installed Windows and the game.
But if i just copy the game saves and the hall of fame.dat file will that NOT be enough.
This question seems to get asked every day!
Sure, but if you want to keep any other settings, it's as easy just to copy the whole folder.

All usually go into that folder. That's why I suggested that if you want your game to be "as was", it's better/easier just to copy the whole folder.
So my tactics, scouting shortlists from the game, facepacks are in that folder, if so i need that folder.
Anyone please reply to above post.
If i copy that folder and then copy it over the one when i reinstall FM12 will i have all my files.
Where would i need to copy the halloffame file from as that has my achievements, and i dont want to lose them as last time i bloody formatted it i lose my hall of fame data from FM11, there really should be help here for people trying to backup their data.

Post no 2 gives all the details that you need- copy the whole folder and everything you will need will be safe.
FrazT i understand that, but that folder hasnt got the hall of fame file, so where would i need to get and copy that from. Im gona format my laptop now, so please a quick answer would be appreciated.
PLEASE this is important.
Either search for the hall_of_fame.dat or it can be found (at least on Vista/Win 7) at:
C: -> Users -> Public -> Documents -> Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2012
Thanks neil much appreciated.
Hopefully when i reinstall the game i can copy the folder and overwrite to the one im supposed to. Hope everything will still be there.
