Thanks for the great rundown on how to keep your saves safe. I just wanted to pop in and mention a new option we just launched for backing up and syncing PC game saves: GameWisp. It is a startup that automatically finds yours saves and then syncs them to the cloud.
What sets it apart is that we support games no matter where you buy them and then we also have a social network where you can simply trade game saves with other people. So, once your saves are in the cloud, you can choose to share some saves to the community and you can download other people's publicly shared saves/characters/minecraft worlds/etc. and those saves are auto synced to the right spot on your machines.
Check it out at gamewisp.com. It's free!
Thanks again for the article!
