    Well its not, its in the Steam\steamapps\common\raceroom racing experience\Game folder.
    I have no Simbin folder in My Documents.
    I have just done a fresh install of windows but it was in my documents folder yesterday, I ran the game today and all my settings had gone and then I noticed it missing.

    Here is proof of where its gone to. Should I reinstall or can I cut paste all folders back to my documents?
    Also don't know where the Steamworks Share folder came from either.

    How about this, today I turned on a feature in windows defender called Controlled folder access and my documents is one of the protected folders, and it prevents access from "unfriendly applications".
    I am reinstalling and turning that feature off and hopefully will be back to normal.
