    Hi,

    You can find the saved games under C:/Users/YOURUSER/Appdata/Local/ (youruser is your user name). You can make a backup of all those files and once you have re installed Windows, you can simply copy paste the files under same folder and re install the games. Like this you wont' need to start from beginning.

In my opinion, games should be installed in SSD drive in order to benefit the decreased loading times. We would only get HDD speed if the games are installed in HDD drive. Correct me if I'm wrong, please. Thanks.
