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

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.
