I have Microsoft FlightSimulator X (10) and completed most of the "missions". I currently run the program on a laptop (Dell E1505) with a 60GB harddrive.
At this time, I'm considering formatting my harddrive and reloading my machine. Before I do so, I want to make sure that I backup all "mission files" so that I don't need to start from scratch once I reloaded Flight Simulator. Does anyone know where the "completed mission file(s)" are stored? And what are they called (incl. file extension)?
Also, I'm considering purchasing an external harddrive onto which I'd load FlightSimulator. If doing so, would I have to expect a performance decrease due the the program being on an external drive?
