I reformatted my PC and ended up with a backup of my Dragon Age 2 files not getting recognized by my new Dragon Age 2 installation. I basically just copied it into the Documents\Bioware\Dragon Age 2 folder. Anyone know if there are anymore steps I need to do so that my saves get restored to their former glory?

If you copied your character folders then it should be a matter of putting those same folders back into the Dragon Age 2 save directory as you found them. Remember to also download all the necessary updates for the game.
