Next browse to the data you wish to backup:

Go to start -> computer

Double-click on C:

Double-click on the users folder

Double-click on a folder that has your Windows username

Double-click on the AppData folder

Double-click on the Local folder

Double-click on the Activision folder

Double-click on the CoDWaW folder

Backup the Players folder and servercache.dat file to a safe location
