    A 7 year old friend of mine has mistakenly overwritten his user data.
    He is crushed. He's rarely allowed to play on the computer and is
    devastated that he has lost his ranking and his zen garden.

    I would like to be able to copy my user data onto his computer but
    cannot for the life of me figure out where it is stored. I use xp, he
    has vista.


    This is his first computer game - too soon to learn that hard a lesson.

    So tell him now that he has learned to play the game, he can regain what he
    had gotten up to easier and quicker. Rebuild and improve. That is the
    process of learning.

    Did you try google?


    Wanna continue playing Plants Vs. Zombies on a different computer, but don't
    want to lose your progress? I know I ran into this scenario: I've been
    playing the game on my netbook, but really wanted to start playing on my
    desktop's 24" monitor.
    So I poked around and eventually figured out where the elusive save files
    are located.

    Steam version
    Vista/Window 7: C:\ProgramData\Steam\PlantsVsZombies\userdata
    XP: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\plants vs zombies\userdata
    Non-Steam version
    Vista/Windows 7: C:\ProgramData\PopCap Games\PlantsVsZombies\userdata
    XP: C:\Program Files\PopCap Games\Plants vs. Zombies\userdata
    So, locate the files on the computer you're currently playing on. Then, copy
    all of the .dat files into the directory on the computer you want to start
    playing on (in my case, I copied them from the netbook to the desktop). Note
    that this will overwrite any progress on the target computer, but you
    probably figured that already.

    So right in a subdirectory of where the program is installed. Great mystery
