Simple script to backup and launch your game with just one click
This script takes one backup of your profile and automatically deletes old backup if you run the script again.
So if you happen to lose your progress do not run this script again or it will overwrite the old backup with your new progress!

You need three things before you can continue forward onto the script itself:
  • the folder you installed steam into
  • your steamID3
  • folder for the backup

To find your steamID3 you can use this website: https://steamid.io/ - simply copy and paste link to your steam community profile page to the website and it tells you the steamID3 of your profile.

Now that you have your Steam install folder and steamID3 open Notepad and paste this inside it:
cd C:\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-THE-FOLDER-WHERE-YOUR-WISH-TO-STORE-THE-BACKUP del Profilesaves /q /a del FullProfile /q /a rd Profilesaves xcopy "C:\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-YOUR-STEAM-INSTALL-FOLDER\Steam\userdata\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-YOUR-STEAMID3\381210\remote" "C:\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-THE-FOLDER-WHERE-YOUR-WISH-TO-STORE-THE-BACKUP" /e cd C:\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-YOUR-STEAM-INSTALL-FOLDER\Steam Steam.exe -applaunch 381210

Name the file as DbD-backup.bat.
Then you must save that as all files, not a .txt file!
To do that see this image:
Example file
cd C:\DbD Backup del Profilesaves /q /a del FullProfile /q /a rd Profilesaves xcopy "C:\Steam\userdata\22331350\381210\remote" "C:\DbD Backup" /e cd C:\Steam Steam.exe -applaunch 381210
How to restore the backup?
Make sure your game isn't running and Steam Cloud is turned off so it doesn't overwrite your backup files instantly when you run the game again. Remember to turn Steam Cloud back on afterwards.

To restore the backup simply open the backup folder and the C:\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-YOUR-STEAM-INSTALL-FOLDER\Steam\userdata\REPLACE-THIS-WITH-YOUR-STEAMID3\381210\remote folder and then copy everything from backup folder to your game folder.
