I had to reinstall Steam and now I lost my saves. Can't find them anywhere, not in the Steam Install Folder\SteamApps\Steam Username\Portal\Portal\Save\, can't find it anywhere :(

Any method to get them back, next to returning to a restore point?

Team fortress save?

Yeah um.... whut?

How does "whut?" differ in meaning than 'what?"

It's slightly more internet-sarcastic.

Team fortress save?

Ah sorry my bad, it's still there.
But not for Portal :(

Uninstalling Steam deletes EVERYTHING in that directory. Portal stores its saves inside the Portal directory - which has been deleted. If you have reinstalled and re-using the computer Steam is running, recovering them will be hard.

Is there a problem with running through the game again? All your achievements are save anyway.
Team Fortress 2 uses "Steam Cloud" which means common things are saved, controls, stats (probably) and saves. Portal doesn't use this.

So - without hard drive recovery taking place, your saves are gone
