My boyfriend and I both play most of our games through Steam. I recently wanted to play a game that we both own on his desktop, logged into his Windows account, but using my Steam account and getting my save file from the Steam Cloud.
When I started up the game, however, the Cloud gave me two options:
- Sync the Cloud to this computer and the current save file (ie my boyfriend's account save file); or
- Sync the computer's save file to the Cloud and thus erase my personal save file.
Is it in any way possible for two accounts to use the Cloud independently on one Windows account?
Using multiple accounts seems the be the obvious answer here, but while it works for some games which store save files in a sane way (in user directories), a lot of Steam games have their files in a global location in Steamapps.
