Default Game files after format

I’m going to format. What do I need to keep for my GTA San Andreas saved games to be safe when reinstall the game? I was this the GTA San Andreas User Files folder, do I need anything else?

All I can say is give it a try. Well, wait, take those files, save them to a cd or whatever, install SA on another pc, load those files to the same directory and see if you can play them as a saved game. It might pick it up. Never know..Its worth a try.

Use norton ghost and save all the files that you want to and just delete the rest of them...i think that might work

I'm at work, but if I remember correctly, the saved games are stored in your my documents folder under gtasasav or something rather.
