Since I lost most of my panels, and lately a large majority of my sound, I am going to remove FS2004 in anticipation of a reinstall.
I have pulled a few of my favorite downloaded a/c into a seperate folder, but I figure I'll lose their guages and effects, but at least I'll know their names to search for them again.
What I am conerned about losing the most is the addon scenery like runway/taxiway graphics, because I think I downloaded lots and lots of these, but oh well, I'll just have to find them again.
Any suggestions to this process that I may be missing? Is it possible to save my logbook? I finally got it working again, I don't want to lose the big flights I've done since then.
Everything you download goes somewhere.Do you tell it where to save files?
The easy way of backing up your fs files is to create a fs d/load folder,and in there you could make folders for panels,scenery and anything else,then you know where they all are
I cant remember the default save file as I have created folders for everything,music video programs ,A/V ect.ect 😉
While it won't help much this time, in the future, you might want to consider keeping your downloads is a specific directory (or burning them on a CD-ROM). That way, if disaster strikes, you don't have to download all of them again.
