Are Multiple Installs Possible?


Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, i want toknow if it is possible to have 2 seperate installs of san andreas on my computer i.e. one modded for messing around, and one clean version for playin online.


when i run the disk to try and install, i only get the option to play, and when i explore the disk and run the setup.exe, im prompted to completely remove my current GTA:SA suicidal.gif


any help would be much appreciated

What I tend to do is once I've installed SA I make backups of all folders and files so that when I do want to have an extra install I just copy the files to a new folder. Obviously you need the HDD space to do this but for me its worth it as if I really screw up the game I can just start fresh without having to do a reinstall.
