you should be able to find the save game directory files and back them up to a separate folder so they wont uninstall

It's under the WiC folder as well as under My Documents\My Games\World in Conflict I believe. Shouldn't be hard to find and backup.

This is why you should have a main C: partition for only your Operating System and programs. Then a D: partition just for games. Just remember after installing all games to change the saved game directory to the D: partition somewhere.

That way whenever you want to do a reformat and reinstall windows you don't have to worry about formating your saved game as well because you will only have to format the C: partition. Of course you would make sure you moved all your data folders to another partition or hard drive so when you format the C: drive they don't get wipped out as well. For example all your email should not be stored on the C: drive inless you want to have to back it up every time before you do a complete format of the C: drive to reinstall windows. Same for bookmarks and so on.
