I have an online "Games for Windows" account and use it when playing. Recently, when I log into the game it welcomes me as if it's the my first time playing the game.

Where did my saved profile go?

This forum post appears to detail a series of problems and potential fixes for GfWL not saving your DiRT3 game. The save games should be located in C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\XLive\ –  kalina Jun 26 '12 at 0:47

I found out that I had a new Documents folder since I reinstalled Windows. Thankfully I backed up the old one. The profile data is in: C:\Users\MyUserName\Documents\My Games\DiRT3\savegame

I thought that the profile data was saved in the cloud with a online account. To bad it isn't so.
