Where is the DayZ saved game file located

dayz-2012

I'm planning on formatting my hard drive and deal with all the hassle that comes with it. My one concern is, where is the saved game file for DayZ? Will I be able to transfer it to my fresh new install of Windows, or will I have to start a new character?

Your DayZ character is stored server-side and is linked to your CD-Key. As long as you are playing with the same CD-key, you will have access to your character.
