So I think my copy of GTA V has become corrupt as almost all the textures have disappeared and show black. Anyways I want to uninstall and reinstall the game. I need to know if I can copy my save file onto an SD card and just paste it back when I reinstall the game and continue on the story mode. I am just over 50% done and don't want to start all over again.

You have three options : -

 

1. Open your shortcut and add -verify to the target... then run the game from that shortcut to verify the game files... If you do this make sure to delete the - verify once you've done.

 

2. Insert disk 1 and run setup and repair

 

3. Uninstall the game and reinstall it.... If you do this without first copying your sav files you will loose your progress.

I backup my save games to a thumb drive and just copy over a unzipped copy of my saved games. I 7-zip/archive saved games and extract a copy whenever it's needed!, so yes if you have it else where off your main drive and C:\Users\username\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\E0C1300B folder it well work fine

 

 

make sure it's the file called SGTA50000 and the bak file extensions can be backed up too, but the game usually uses SGTA50000

Yes

 

You can also upload your save to this site if you want http://gtasnp.com/

 

The site will automatically delete the save after 30 days (or 30 days from the last time someone downloads it)-- be sure to bookmark the URL it gives you after you upload the save.

 

If you ever lose your progress or the save file becomes corrupt-- you can always download someone elses save file from that site too... http://gtasnp.com/browse

 

I do urge everyone to utilize all there save slots and every 5 to 10% (or after doing something particularly tedious-- sub parts for example) to backup their save file either externally or to another save slot.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I actually had to format my drive and set everything back to factory settings because Windows was acting up. I was able to reinstall the game and simply paste my save files back and everythings OK.
