Windows 7 hides the AppData file by default, mainly because it contains information vital to how your programs run.  However to backup your Midnight Castle file, you will need to access your AppData folder.  If you cannot locate the file by searching for C:\Users\YourUserNameHere\AppData, then:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Click Organize in the blue bar at the top of the window, then click Folder and search options.
  3. Click the View tab
  4. Check the box to the left of Show hidden files, folders and drives, click Apply, then click OK.
  5. Click the C Drive option in the left column of Windows Explorer.
  6. Double-click the Users folder.
  7. Double-click the user whose AppData folder you want to find.
  8. Double-click the AppData folder.

Step 1: Click the folder icon in the taskbar at the bottom of your screen.

 Step 2: Click Organize at the top of the window, then click Folder and search options.

Step 3: Click the View tab at the top of the window.

Step 4: Check the option to the left of Show hidden files, folders and drives, then click the Apply button at the bottom of the window.

Step 5: Click the C drive option in the column at the left side of the window.

Step 6: Double-click the Users folder.

 Step 7: Double-click the name of the Windows 7 user containing the AppData folder you want to access

Now that you have located the AppData folder:

Step 8:  Double-click the Roaming Folder (for future use, you may want to create a shortcut by right-clicking the roaming folder and copy/paste the shortcut to your desktop.  Once you do this, you can go back to Steps 2 through 4 to restore the "Hidden" default)

Step 9:  Scroll down and double-click on Elephant Games

Step 10Locate Midnight Castle folder and copy folder.  Paste to Desktop, Rename and copy renamed version to flash drive.
