This link is very organized and will help with this achievement greatly. This is for anyone still struggling with Data Miner.

Actually, it works for them too. I didn't have to carry Rebecca at all. The only one it won't work for is the mermaid, cos duh! It was a huge help with slow-ass Dean (who I actually had to rescue TWICE in one playthrough one time, and I KNOW I saved after bringing him back the first time).

So Im thinking his loading has something to do with grabbing the zombrex, and not what time it is. I could be wrong though.
I grabbed the zombrex, took Denyce back to the safehouse, then ran through Fortune Park (stopping to pick up the Leadershop Magazine from where you get Sven in the bingo hall, on the left) and used the push cart/bin part of the way to the Yucatan. Cutscene triggered, and I killed Ted with a bunch of jumping Defiler attacks (fireaxe + sledgehammer*), tamed snowflake with the triangle method (laying the 3 steaks in a triangle outside her cage, on the white floor, and waiting in the doorway inside her cage, on the right, where she won't attack, sniping any zombies with Ted's handgun...and trying to stay in her line of sight so the steaks are between me and her), then grabbed Lenny and hauled ass back to the RF Plaza (stopping to save once in Yucatan, using an EXTRA slot).

I did use the wheelchair from Yucatan all the way through the Food Court (avoiding zombies and pushing Lenny) into the next casino the arrow leads you to (Slot Ranch?) but I accidentally dumped him out there and made him run for himself (w/ leadership mag again, if it makes a difference).

The trick to taking the wheelchair between areas is picking it up before you hit B to go through the door.

I made it back to the security room in the safehouse with Snowflake and Lenny just as it told me to give Katie her zombrex, so I still had one in-game hour to go. I'm pretty sure anybody determined (with fully leveled speed) could do it without the pushcart and wheelchair (esp. with a Quickstep or 2) as long as they have their Snowflake feeding technique down.

*In case anyone doesn't know, there's a fire axe right outside the security room by the fire extinguisher and a sledgehammer right past the combo-weapon-making-room on your way out of the safehouse, so you can make a Defiler to go with your Spiked Bat every time you leave.

Edit: Just got Data Miner. Great walkthrough.

I wanted to point out about the last 2 survivors (the 2 soldiers in Fortune Park) while you have to drop all your guns to get them to join you, once they've joined you can pick them back up again. Dwight's LMG came in very handy for fighting my way back to RFP with the 2 soldiers and Rebecca.

Edit 2: I really wish I'd known about the sniper rifle in Royal Flush Plaza:

Try look through the notebook first and see what you're missing and then google it up for the last few. Also you don't need to save them, just kill them and it'll register.

Is there something specific that triggers Family Feud? I thought I saw the call my first playthrough, but it's the right time on the second run through and NOTHING is active. The only thing that might be alive is the Rednecks.

Missed out on:
48) Michael Woo - Fortune park (no mission) near the save and maintenance room in the center (case 7)
97) Matthew Kuss Fortune park (no mission) near the save and maintenance room in the center (case 7)
Because I taught I was done with all survivors-_-"

Great guide though! Helped me a lot!

if you join a co-op game with someone that already has Data Miner already apparently it pops for you.
