Thank you for the response, welcome, and condolences.

Inside of the save folder and main folder are all of my characters in their own folders. I validated when I pasted it into the non cloud location.

I copied the exact same folder back into place when checking to make sure I could return to cloud settings.

It is probably something I am doing wrong...lol.

ETA: I am tracking on the numbered folders.

Well I have to say I'm confused...


Can you possibly take a screen shot of your GD settings on the General tab and one of the contents of your \Main folder so I can see the address bar.


Cheers

I will screenshot current settings (returned to cloud until I can figure this out) and my (to this point obviously incorrect) second attempt local settings this evening.

Thank you for your willingness to help.

Here are my current settings. It was suggested that I not share the first numbered folder so it is blacked out. I will go back through the process and post screen shots for direct comparison.

And what do you know. I swear I did exactly the same thing. Now it is working.

Feeling rather foolish, but would love to know what I failed to do the other day.

Unhappy

Hi, I wish I found your post earlier. Here is my situation:


I started playing GD with Cloud Saving ON.

I had several characters, none are optimal cause I didnt know much about the game back then. As time goes on and I learned more about itemization and different builds, I increasingly felt the need to have a stack mod. I installed GDStash. And yes, I did read the warning regarding using GDSTash with Cloud Saving on. Things were going fine, I made use of the unlimited stash space quite well and did really enjoy the game ever since.

But one day I made one mistake. And every thing in my stash is gone. Mats, legs, potions, gone. I couldn't recover it at all. the only thing left is my characters and the gear i wear and the stuff in my bag. I felt horrible.

Then I made a decision to switch to local save file. But I did not transfer any characters from cloud to local cause I didn't know we could do it So I started fresh. I did use GDStash to cheat some help items to get started super quick.

And now, I have like 15 characters with around 10 of them being maxed out. I really enjoy this game. I have a lot of build ideas, I generate them so fast I cannot grind character fast enough. For example now, I just had an idea for a Witch Hunter, but I don't have one.

However,

I do have a lv 90+ Witch Hunter in my cloud save! and so I digged, dived deep in my file explorer to find those cloud saves. And nothing showed up. I find no "Steam" folder, no "219990" folder no nothing.

So my question is: After checking "Cloud Saving" in Grim Dawn settings, do all my cloud save characters get deleted ((((((

Can I recover them somehow?????

I don't mind grinding a new Witch Hunter again but it will be super neat if I can get him back.

Hiya mcquany and sorry for delay in replying I've been rebuilding my pc from scratch.

First off, NO, Grim Dawn doesn't delete any of your saves, even if you uninstall GD, without you manually selecting a char in the char screen and select delete.

Regards your cloud save, what's the location of your Steam installation?

You were saying that you cannot find your cloud saves, these are all stored in whatever location you installed Steam. GD does also have local saves in a different locvation, hence this thread, but these are only used when cloud saving is disabled and you said

Hence why I asked where your Steam folder is, as you say you don't have one.

Hence my confusion. In the Steam folder, which if you have Steam installed WILL exist, is the location of the cloud saves, which is given in the very first post.

I really don't understand how you can supposedly have no steam folder etc.

Oh my gosh. You are right. So, my Steam is installed in a different location. And Grim Dawn is installed in a different location. And so I got confused. THanks a lot I found my character!
