Locating Astroneer Save files


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

I am trying to locate the Astroneer game save file so that I can create a back up.  Everything I've tried so far to find the file location has failed epically.

Please note that I purchased my game through the Microsoft Store so the file address I've seen given in previous threads for Steam purchased games does

not seem to apply here.

Thanks

After 2 weeks of frustrating searching I finally (accidentally) found the game save location for Windows store purchased version of Astroneer.

See below for the directory/folder path:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Packages\SystemEraSoftworks.29415440E1269_ftk5pbg2rayv2\SystemAppData\wgs\000901F4078BAC66_6C0B0100B10345C3B55AA1C421DDC84D\CA3D79B184FF425EA67098BFF6A75A6A

I suspect the folders and save file numbers located in the wgs subfolder will vary with each user but if you can get to the /wgs portion, the save games are located within that

sub directory.

 

Good luck

I just tried this and there are no save games files there at all, only one config file.
