Downloading Saved Games from Steam Cloud?

11858 technical support

Steam syncs many save files to its servers. They are automatically downloaded through Steam when you install a game, but that’s not the only way to get them. You can also download them directly from Valve’s website in your browser.

How to Enable Steam Cloud Sync?

If Steam isn’t automatically downloading your old saved games after you install a game, make sure the Steam Cloud on Steam is enabled.

To do this, locate the game in your Steam library, right-click it, and then select “Properties”. Click the “Updates” tab and make sure “Enable Steam Cloud sync” for the game is checked. If this option is not checked, Steam will not automatically download or upload your cloud saves.

If you don’t see a Steam Cloud option for a game here, that game doesn’t support Steam Cloud. Not all games on Steam do this; it depends on each game developer.

Download Files in Your Web Browser

Valve also lets you download your Steam cloud save files via a web browser. You can only download your save files without redownloading the entire game.

To find the files you saved, visit Valve’s View Steam Cloud page in your web browser and sign in with your Steam account.

You’ll see a list of games using your Steam Cloud storage. Find the game in the list (press Ctrl + F to use the browser’s search) – and click “Show Files” to see all the files for a game.

Each game has a page that shows all the files it has stored in the Steam Cloud and the date they were modified. Click “Download” to download a file. Download all saved files for your game; You get a copy of the save games.

This is especially useful for multiplatform games that don’t automatically sync save files across platforms.

For example, Borderlands 2 is available for both PC and Mac. It syncs save files with Steam Cloud, but both PC and Mac versions sync save files separately. You can download the Mac (or PC) versions from Steam’s website and then manually import the Borderlands 2 game into the correct folder to save it across platforms.

Without using the website, this requires downloading Borderlands 2 on one platform, extracting your save games, and then downloading the game on a second platform!

This is a known issue for other games as well – it also seems necessary when migrating save games from Torchlight for Windows to Torchlight for Linux, for example.
