I bought the game on Steam and the cloud service has become unnerving, always being down. Where does the local save of the game save to?

  • I can't tell for FF7, but usually it's a more or less meaningful subdirectory %appdata% or My Documents\My Games. In rare cases savegames are also in the games folder itself, i.e. Steamdir\steamapps\common\gamename. Either way, a defunct cloud service should have no influence on your local savegames unless you play on multiple machines – Zommuter Oct 5 '13 at 17:55

Your local saves are stored in My Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VII Steam\User_X\

In the launcher you have the option to disable cloud saves, then it will save and load to and from disk.

    Good luck playing the game, it's definitely one of the best in the series! – Madmenyo Oct 5 '13 at 18:34
