# Is there a way to backup save files in Torchlight?

I've run into issues with corrupted save files in Torchlight before due to a mixup in installed mods between my two computers. Whoops.

Is there some way to duplicate my save games? I'd like to have a backup, but because the saves are constant across the Steam Cloud, I'm a little confused on if this is even possible, or where to look for the saved games in the first place.

Have you considered using Dropbox (referral link for bonus space) to keep your mod folders in sync between your computers? That way it won't happen again. :) –  Brant Mar 14 '11 at 16:09

Your Torchlight saves are kept in %APPDATA%\runic games\torchlight\save\ on Windows, ~/.runicgames/Torchlight/Save/ on Linux and ~/Library/Application Support/runic games/torchlight/save/ on OS X. You can back up your save files by simply making a copy of this folder somewhere else.
