Game Save File

#1jreed1337Posted 5/18/2010 11:55:50 AM
so i am buying a 250gb HDD this afternoon after work.

think my game save file is going to get corrupted during the transfer? i can't wait to get 100% before switching over HDs, so i might be boning myself...lol.

sigh, im anxious, hundreds of hours and millions of dollars could be killed in a matter of seconds!

ahhhhhh!

Put all of your cars on the AH, or if you want you can send them on over to me and I'll pop 'em right back over if you like?

I can put a car up on the AH for your amount of CR too if you like, then I'll throw it right back over :]

dude, i have like 110 cars...lol. i dont think you want me to gift all them over to you...haha.

can i make a backup copy of the game save onto multiple flash drives?

hmm, my arcade has a built in 512mb storage, can one of you guys look and see how large the game save file is itself? like just the save file under your name. maybe i could just back it up to the on board 512mb card...

You can always transfer your save to a memory card then on to your new hard drive after the file transfer is complete.

I don't mind, honestly.

I've only got like....50 cars anyway, all my specialist tunes, so yours will be rather noticeable!

If you want me to, then no problem :]

Gift cars, you wont get them back either by corrupting your file, or sending to me.

You can only transfer your save, it cannot be copied. I've transferred one of my saves several times with no corruption.
