Borderlands not saving progress

I recently installed Borderlands on a new machine and copied my savegame folder over from my old Computer and the game plays fine but.....it doesn't save game progress at all.

Even if i go to a savegame "Post" and see the saving icon. If I log out and log back into the game all progress is lost and any items i have found are gone.

Any ideas?

Your save file / folder is read-only?

Test other characters and\or create a new one.

As suggested by Bonq, make sure you have fulll read\write access to the "Savedata" folder.

Also, renaming character files can have unpredictable results.

Did you happen to have the files on a CD/DVD? In old versions of Windows (like Win98 and Win2000), when you copied files from a read-only device, like a CD, the files would be read-only. That seems to have changed in more recent Windows versions, but maybe there's a setting that makes it work the old way or something.
