PGA TOUR 2K21 How to make back up User Profile Guide


2K21 User Profile
This file can become corrupt so i recommend saving the file or back it up quite often, various things can cause a corrupt User Profile and it does happen in other games as well , so here is how to back up the file for 2K21 PGA TOUR .
WARNING – If you get a corrupt User Profile the Game may not start, you may get an On screen warning , you could lose the Level you have attained along with assets you have attained.

Go to the Control Panel click on Appearance and Personalization
The go to File Explorer Options \ Show hidden files and folders
Then a dialog box opens labeled View, look for Don`t show hidden files and folders
and put a tick in the Box, ******** Show hidden files and folders.***********
Then click Apply and close the Control panel.

We then find the User Profile saves folder the directory is this below

C:\ Users \ your name \ AppData\ Local Low \ 2K \ PGA Tour 2K21
When you have found the User Profile folder which is the [ PGA Tour 2K21 ] folder ,right click on it
and chose the option ” send to desk top \ create short cut ” then you can open this folder from the desktop.

Right click on the desktop and create a new folder i name it 2K21 Saves with the date
Example: 2k21 Saves 23rd April 2021 , put in my documents is an option or leave it on the desktop

Periodically or preferably after every round of the PGA Tour , copy & paste the Data from
the folder PGA Tour 2K21 , which is on your desktop , to the Save Folder 2K21 23rd April 2021

That is obviously today`s date so name your Back Up folder appropriately
In the event of a Corrupt User Profile { this can happen for a number of reasons }
Example power cut while playing the game, interupted file save { do not hit the Advance Icon to quickly } ? a disconnect from steam , a game crash.
After the end of a round the game has to update files shown by the Radio Antena Icon
at the bottom right of your screen.

Before copy&pasting the data from the 2K21 PGA Tour folder to the Saves folder ,I delete the data in the saves folder,
this is a personal thing if you just copy&paste the data from the PGA Tour 2K21 to the Saves folder it will
prompt you to over write existing data click OK \ Yes .

Another option is to put the save file on a usb memory stick because you never no when a Major PC crash could happen ,
On the hyper link below is a screen shot of what to expect when the User Profile becomes corrupt , this was what happened to me and the Guide fixed it, if you get this ******** SELECT CANCEL ******** If you select CONFIRM it would restart you PGA Tour from the begining.
BELOW THE DREADED CORRUPT PROFILE MESSAGE ON THE HYPER LINK and on this screen shot you will see { bottom right corner } the Radio type Icon which appears when the game is saving or updating the User Profile
Update , PGA Tour 2K21 it seems that the User Profile is or gets corrupted when playing the Tour after Q school
