Dirt2 Autosave Corruption Fix (Exclusive File)

It seems like just yesterday I was telling you about a fix for Dirt2... Oh wait it was. Well, a day later I got the autosave corrupted error.

So I looked around and from a few fixed on the net I combined them into one uber fix that not only gave me my level back but also my money and cars.

I figured I would share the fix with you other unlucky gamers that may have run into the same problem.

As always back up your saves before you do this fix even though I have build a autobackup into the fix please do not rely on that as your only backup method. Your are using this fix at your own risk. If the file you downloaded doesn't have only this code below its been tampered with.

This fix is for VISTA and WIN7 Only !

Click here to download the fix then run the bat as administrator

Here is the code incase your curious whats in the bat
