This Guide will allow you to make backup copies of your character files, often referred to .dun files.

Head over to your Steam directory:

Steam > steamapps > common > dungeon defenders > Binaries > Win32

Inside this directory you'll find the DunDefHeroes.dun and a DunDefHeroes.dun.bak (you may also see DunDefHeroes.bak). these files are your local character save files (often referred to unranked characters).

Copy these files to any other location to make a back up.

Note: TE said use this method for now, until they can make a proper backup program.

Kalafiorek mentioned on the forums that you can make a batch file to do this for you.

Open Notepad, paste this information into it, save as DunDef Backup.bat.

For Windows 32 bit systems:

set tm=%time%
set tm=%tm::=-%
md "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Backups\%date% %tm%"
copy "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Binaries\Win32\DunDefHeroes.*" "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Backups\%date% %tm%"

For Windows 64 bit systems:

set tm=%time%
set tm=%tm::=-%
md "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Backups\%date% %tm%"
copy "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Binaries\Win32\DunDefHeroes.*" "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dungeon defenders\Backups\%date% %tm%"

Note: if you installed to another location you'll have to change the text to the correct location. If you wish to backup to another location (not in the Steam\Dungeon Defenders you'll need to change the lines with the word Backup.

set tm=%time%
set tm=%tm::=-%
md "D:\Dungeon Defenders\Backups\%date% %tm%"
