Backup your save files and place them back in the same location. They are in

My Documents >> My Games >> Borderlands >> SaveData

If you manually copy your save games note one thing. The saveslot used by the save is NOT tied to the name of the save. Savegame01 renamed to savegame02 WILL overwrite savegame01 upon saving. Lost a character that way. –  Ids Sep 25 '12 at 13:21

As of Sept 9, 2011, a Borderlands Steam update was released to transfer saved games to the cloud, meaning that the saved progress and characters would be restored after your operating system reinstall.
