Hi guys,

Today I'm going to be reinstalling windows, but before I do I want to transfer my save file to a hard drive so when I go to install my applications again I will have the save files, can someone point me in the right direction for this as I've been trying to look around online and on my PC for the location/solution of the save files

Thanks in advance!
Too late now, but for prosperity -

Which, FYI, is also where you can find the 'Assassin.INI' file, which is handy to modify to re-enable AA (anti-aliasing / multi-sampling) when playing at high resolutions like 1080p. For some reason the game disables it and the in-game option is grayed out above a certain count of pixels. Just change the 'Multisampling=0' line to =1 (for 2xAA) or =2 (for 4xAA), and bang, no more jagged edges!
