Default here is the path for backing up uplay games

c:\program files(x86)\ubisoft\ubisoft game launcher\cache\installers\(insert number here,depends on game, you will be able to figure this out by going into each numbered folder and looking for the games .exe file)

just backup that directory as it's the individual directory for each game.

make sure you backup the games before you install the game after downloading as uplay deletes the numbered installer directory after you install the game. Otherwise, you will be redownloading. I wish origin would give you a chance before installation to backup as origin games install automatically and I would guess that's why their installers are deleted when you try looking for them after installation.

speaking of which, uplay games (at least Far Cry 3: blood dragon) has .pdf manuals in the installer directory before you install. You have to look around but they are there.
