Does any one know what folder the Steam version of GTA4 uses to store saved games?

I used an offline Windows Live account to create my profile. I've scoured the My Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\ and steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto iv\ directory with no luck.

I commonly reinstall my OS, so rsyncing my save game backups is something I always do. I'm incredibly frustrated with how difficult it is to find my f*cking saved game files! Most games just shove them into a suggestive directory name that you can point your rsync app at. *sigh*. Any help would be appreciated.

Vista?

C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames

It'll be a hidden folder (AppData at least).

Thanks! I was running XP actually, but the same path worked (only starting with Documents and Settings\<user>\...)

Thanks for posting that, eagle016. icon14.gif

Does anyone know if it's the same location for the DVD version?

This doesn't work for Windows 8?

Yes, I have both the DVD and Steam versions and both share the same folder in Documents. The saves are in the Documents folder for both versions. Here's proof of that... This is the same on both my Windows 7 PC's. smile.gif
