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.

Sure, but if you want to keep any other settings, it's as easy just to copy the whole folder.

But what other setting do you actually mean though.

training schedules, face packs, shortlists

Any graphics you've added to the game, your tactics, training schedules, scouting shortlists, etc...

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.

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.

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.
