I want to take a backup of my city of SimCity 4.

In the directory Documents\SimCity 4\Regions\ in Libraries (Windows 7), I have a directory with the name of my city. Do I need to include something else in the backup if I want to restore my city from a fresh installation of SimCity 4?


Yes, this is where the SimCity 4 save games are kept. To be on the safe side, I'd copy the whole SimCity4 directory from your Documents folder. I believe they're organized by region, and then within the region the individual saved cities are located.

This About.com article mentions backing up this folder in order to back up your SimCity 4 saves, and I remember copying this folder before when I played SimCity 4.
