    I have a question about the Windows 8 Xbox Live games save data. Are they accessible in the computer to backup? If so, where are they stored?

    One thing that I really dont like about my WP7 is they keep away any access to the saves and when I had to get my phone replaced I lost all my hard work in them and never bought another xbox live game again cause of it.

    well.. that applies to xbox 360 games saves which i know how to handle those... but where are the saves for the windows 8 xbox live games? like that new jetpack game from halfbrick. I like to keep my computer fresh and usually do complete installs after 6month to a year and dont want any of my saves gone from doing so.

    Having read through a number of articles it would seem you can save to the cloud using xbox live gaming. If there is an actual folder on the pc containing saves I haven't found any reference to it.
