No, it's a widespread epidemic. ☺
lordhoff: So, this isn't Gothic-only? It can be done with other older games? Lost all save games once in "Total War" which I think is as old as Gothic I. Is there a site which explains how to do this because, I have a lot of older games.
Can affect even relatively modern games like Hearts of Iron III.
Some options :
- install games into other folders eg c:\games or
- check the save folder(s) for the game(s) in the Virtual Store (may have to enable 'show hidden files') or
- disable UAC (generally not recommended).
If you do a web search you should find some tech pages that can point you in the right direction
