[SOLVED] If you installed a game from ubisoft, and then used a restore point before that game was installed, would it be removed along with it's save files?

I believe it will likely keep the save points, but the app itself would be uninstalled right? Do games usually have any save info installed with the game files itself or are they usually kept somewhere safe?

What about games you put in the "downloads" area? Will they remain in your downloaded files without any alterations? Do they count as "personal" files?

A restore point would return the system back to the day when it was created.

If that was before the game was installed....poof, gone.
Game save info may or may not survive.


If you want better recovery options, don't depend on Restore Points.

Makes sense, but I just wanted to make sure downloaded files count as personal files right? Like documents, pictures, etc. and won't be removed? I don't mean games that are put into directories, just downloaded files in general.
