Dead Rising 2 *Saves Location*

Anyone know where this is? I'm going to be reformatting a new primary hard drive, so I'll need to put everything I can on a secondary hard drive.

For my windows 7 setup it's located in C:\Users\YourUserName\Documents\My Games\Dead Rising 2.
But since this is a GFWL title i am not sure the save will work with the new install.

And you'll need to backup the xlive folder again after installing a new GFWL game for the first time and saving it as there's no way to tell which files in the xlive folder are for which game, though the entire contents of the xlive folder (other than DLC such as the GTA IV ones, which you can find and delete if you don't want them backed up as well) is only a few megabytes anyway.
Actually i did a cpu+mobo+ram upgrade and had to install Win7 again. This happend before i saw your comment so i didn't save the xlive folder.
I just backed up the Dead rising 2 folder with the save files and after i put them back they loaded just fine.

Off the top of my head the ones that need it are GTA IV for it's singleplayer (and possibly multiplayer, haven't tested that) and Red Faction Guerrilla for it's multiplayer ranks and unlocks but as I said there are more so it's best to back up the xlive folder as well.
Pretty sure Batman: Arkham Asylum needs it too. Either that or my saves screwed up for no reason >

Dead Rising2 saves can be transferred from PC to PC as long as you use the same gamertag the game was registered with on GFWL.
