    I believe you must start a new career with your re-install before overwriting the files with your backed up save game.

    I read this somewhere in a thread recently, but can't find it.

    true, 1st start the game without your backups, do whatever u have to do in game, then exit, and replace the saved folders that where created with your backups

    Correct, except dont replace the folders - replace the files. (eg put the old 'backup' files, into the corresponding newly created folders.

    It's GFWL fault. Your save games are linked to your GFW profile, so when doing a backup, you need also to backup your GFW profile:

    {system drive}:\Users\{your user name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\XLive

    and to be sure:

    {system drive}:\Users\{your user name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\GFWLive

    and - of course - game saves from My Documents folder.

    But there is no quarantee that this GFW crap will kick in as you want it after reinstall...
