Hi! I updated to Win10 recently and did a clean install. Since most of my other games store all screenshots and savegames in "My Documents" (My Games or Gametitle Folder) I forgot to backup the savegame of SPAZ and a few other things stored in the User folder. :(

Maybe it would be easier to find/backup if the savegames are in the Documents Folder?

Easy to do yourself:

Open a command line (Win+R, put in cmd, press enter) and follow these instructions

Enter: cd %appdata%\minmaxgames
Open the same folder in your explorer, by putting %appdata%\minmaxgames into the address bar
Rename directory spacepiratesandzombies to something else
Enter: mkdir %userprofile%\Documents\SPAZ2
Enter: mklink /J spacepiratesandzombies %userprofile%\Documents\SPAZ2

Finally, move everything from the renamed folder to the SPAZ2 folder in Documents.
Your saves now live there and windows redirects the game to that folder.
N.B.: This only works on a NTFS File System, so, sorry Windows 98 users :P.
