I can't find those that I need to delete. What's the location of those files?

How can we manage them?

Skyrim puts its saves in the following directory in Windows Vista & Windows 7:

C:\Users\[UserName]\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves

Skyrim puts saves in the following directory in Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings[UserName]\My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves

These files are not dependent on anything so you can freely share them across computers, delete, copy, backup, or anything else.

Could you add the path for Windows XP? –  user9983 Nov 15 '11 at 4:21
I would assume the saves are under C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\My Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves, but I can't confirm –  3Doubloons Nov 15 '11 at 6:24
Thanks. Amazing that it's all complete. –  Konerak Nov 15 '11 at 14:08
no you can't just copy them - steam give them different cloaked version numbers if anybody has an idea what you can do here let us know? –  user14413 Nov 15 '11 at 16:08
@gfhdgh: I've used the same save files on two different computers without any issue (copying over with Dropbox). If you are having trouble, feel free to ask a question here so we can help you –  3Doubloons Nov 16 '11 at 4:27
