written by Maester

Windows XP Users (Recommended)

Just copy and paste the following text into notepad

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

@echo off

:: variables

set drive=C:\Program Files\Activision\Backup

set backupcmd=xcopy /E /I /Y /D

echo ### Backing up COD4 Stats and profiles...

%backupcmd% "C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\players\profiles" "%drive%\%folder%"

echo Backup Complete!

@pause

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Save it as (cod4backup.bat) or what ever you want to name it, but it need’s (.bat) for extension, put the file anywhere you want, create a shortcut on your desktop.

When you double click on it (option 1), it will copy all the existing profiles from COD4 to C:\Program Files\Activision\Backup directory!

The first time you use the script it will copy your complete profile and rank, you will see lots of files flashing by.

Then the backup is incremental, meaning that it will only copy the files that as change since the last backup. Typically only 2 files will be copied after the initial backup (mpdata, config_mp).

===============================================

Note to Vista users.

You will need to make some modification to the script for it to work...

change the PC in {bold} to your PC!

Your backup folder will be located in C:\COD4_Backup.
