how to back up my whole d2 folder including my shared stash

Post by bettyrubble on Mon Jan 27, 2014 7:54 pm

I was wondering if there was a way for me to backup my game including my shared stash. 3 months ago i lost half of my stuff when my computer crashed out and had to get a new computer. the files that were saved were not current and i lost half of my items and characters when i got my new computer running and uploaded with what was able to be saved.

just archive your save folder (compressed folder, 7zip, etc.)

If you have winrar or any other file archiving software on hand you can just right click on your Diablo II folder in whatever directory you installed it in and it will give you the option to archive it into a zip folder.

Here's a screenshot showing it just in case.

Spoiler:


That should help. Good luck!  Cheers!

Just a lifestyle change I made myself a while back that I recommend to everyone: buy an external drive and plug it to your computer with a USB cable.

I've seen some going for 60-125$ depending on how much space you want. They vary from 1 to 3 Terabytes. This allows you to store ALL of your files in one secure location (your movies, your game progression, your music, files you don't want to lose, backups) and it allows you to carry that information on to any computer by simply pluging the USB cable in.

Even if your computer goes to shit or w.e, your info stays intact, and you can carry it around when you travel and such. It might be a bit expensive but I guarantee you this thing lasts you for a lifetime. It's worth the investment.

You can get small towers that just have mechanical hard drives in them that back up your computer 4 times, however that is a little on the extreme side.

Externals are a good way to back up your computer like wulf said. But you just need to get into the habit of actually backing up your computer since it can take a while to actually transfer 200 - 300 gigs worth of crap.

Go to your Diablo Folder, right clicke, copy, go to where you want your backup to live, paste. Not rocket science.
