One of the few drawbacks of gaming on the PC is that save data are not easily transferable – the files are scattered in different folders and don’t always have the same format, so hunting them one by one can be inconvenient. Even if you don’t play your games on multiple computers, it’s still a good idea to back up your save data. That’s where GameSave Manager comes in. It works with a ton of games (460 titles at the moment), supports scheduled backups and even gives you the option of compressing and encrypting save data.
Even if your game or program is not officially supported, you can add it to the backup list using the “Custom GameSave” feature. One downside to GameSave Manager is that it only works on Windows; I’m not sure if you can port it to Linux or Mac using WINE, or if there’s any sense in doing so.
You can download GameSave Manager at its official website for free. As RPG gamers say: Remember to save, and save often… and save your saves, and save your saves often.
