Hello all,

I made this small tool for my own personal use:) but then I thought maybe someone else find it handy. So I thought to make this post here.

What does it do?

- It copies the content of a folder ( savegame folder) to a FTP address (it creates all the necessary folders)
- The back-up interval can be customized: one time or at a specified interval.
- It offers the "sync" gamesave folder : it automatically downloads the savegames from FTP to your game folders.
- The FTP address, user and password are provided via settings menu and are stored in an encrypted file for security reasons.
- It uses the present in all windows FTP client.
- It is written in C# using .Net 4.0 (This a prerequisite)

Why to use it?

- Back-up your savegames at regular intervals, so you don't lose your savegames due to a Windows crash, game crash or any other reason.
- If you own a desktop & laptop and you want to play your game on the fly on your laptop. And if you are like me:)) I never think of copying my savegames to the laptop before going somewhere. With this tool in just a couple of seconds I can resume my gaming:) on the laptop.

Limitations:

- Obviously, internet bandwidth limitation, depending on your location.
- No game profile edit. Once it is added, you have to remove and re-add it afterwards to modify anything.
- Offers only back-up to FTP. Does not offer an option like "Save to network drive or memory stick".

Improvements:

- If users demand it, I can "remove" the limitations and also add any requested feature if possible.


Best Regards,
Helifax

GameSave Manager is ok... if you like it TO detect what game you have... what happens if It doesnt detect my savegame location. Also waiting 1h to make an archive is insane and than 1h to upload....

My tool will upload only if a difference is found and not HUGE quantities of data (redundant sometimes) and no archiving:))

Made major improvements to it;)) so now it will run even better;)
