Ok, So I'm planning to format my desktop pc and reinstall my windows operating system. Fresh install. I got about 100 installed steam games, you know, in the computah. My problems is I have saves that I don't wanna lose, skyrim for one. Now I figure some games use cloud saving but not every game. My question is, are my saves for every game all in the Steam>steamapps>common folder?
Question about where my steam saves are at.
Ya, all the games files are in those folders. Pretty sure the saves are as well.
Some may be in your %appdata% as well (if you have windows 7 just do a search in the start menu search bar for %appdata% and hit enter- look for the folders for certain games there).
Searching the Steam Forums is what I always do to find my saves. I know some people also use Game Save Manager so I think that can be the easiest way to transfer saves but I have not personally used it. Supported Games.
