I finally got my computer back last night and could start to play 10 days late. I made a wizard and made it to Act 2. Now since I'm a sucker for achivements I would like to go back to Act 1 to talk a bit more to Decard Cain and see if I can find the mission dungeons. Even though I explored a lot, I still seems to be missing loads of dungeons are some of them only available in later difficulties lvl?
But anyway, when I'm on the loginscreen and choose my quest it says it will destroy my saved progress. Does that mean I will have to do it all over again? My plan was to go back, talk a bit to Cain and Leah and then log out and go on with my questline in Act 2. But if all my progress is lost, then it's not worth it.
You'll only lose the progress of the last quest you've been on when you select a different quest. If you go back to Act 1 you'll be able to return to Act 2 without having to play through the rest of Act 1 again.
I am kinda wondering about this as well. I just defeated Diablo on nightmare, and thought about going back to an earlier act. I have played a little in the first act in Hell, but I want to go back to act 2 and 3 in NM to run a little bit. I would still keep my waypoint progress in Hell right? I may just go on in Hell so I might be able to get some decent loot. My drops have been horrible!

Re: Saved progress
You do not lose your waypoints permanently.
Lets see if I can explain this properly.
If you complete the game on NM and have started act 1 in hell, and go back to NM act 1 and run some quests in the middle of the act your wps and quests will be temporarily reset for that game only. You can then make forward progress as far as you like and quit the game.
Then you make a new game and choose to start questing at any point you want again up to your maximum progress in the game (in this case act 1 hell)
You will not lose the total progress you made (up to your last check point) and can always go back there in a new game.
does that help?
