    Do you just copy your save game as a backup? Or do you have some other, better way of doing it?

    You just copy the save game and anything else you want to back up.

    That's exactly how I've tended to do it in the past. I've zipped all my saves and snapshots into a backup archive every day (takes about 30 seconds). And store that on a separate hard drive.

    Of course you can also just create a new save file every time you save manually in game (now). So I increment the letter appended to the end of the save file name every couple of missions, when I'm recording a playthrough. This protects against me making major cock-ups too, as well as rare bugs that might effectively corrupt a save.

    For those not in the know, these are the folder locations (quote from my bug reporting guide):
