I have an online "Games for Windows" account and use it when playing Dirt 3. Recently, when I signed in in the game it welcomed me as if it was the the first time starting 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 located at: 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 that isn't the case.
