Default about backing up uplay installers

uplay installers that you want to backup are not tied to a single number per game. (meaning if yoiu go into the installers directory under ubisoft/ubisoft game launcher/cache/installers) Each user gets a unique number for each game. So, for instance if sc: blacklist for me has the number 444 for installer, another user may have something like 91. So, if you are backing up for more than one user for one game, you have to backup a installer for each user in your home that owns a particula same gamer. This is a PITA compared to steam where one game backup can be used over multiple users over multiple pc's as long as the game is in given users library. For AC IV: Black flag, I don't know what rules apply for mutliple owners of the same game in a given household since it installs on the fly and doesn't need a installer. see my thread on backing up ac Iv:black flag for more details.
