Where are the save games stored? I want to create a copy of them but I cannot find where they're stored!

Where do I need to look to find my save files?

  • If the goal is to create copies, can't you just... save in a new slot? – Nelson Nov 12 '15 at 0:13

    @Nelson I assume the goal is to backup a character or move one save file to another computer. – Colin D Nov 12 '15 at 21:48

On the PC version of the game, save games are stored in My Documents > My Games > Fallout4 > Saves. ("%userprofile%\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\Saves")

  • Similar: on mine it's Documents > Saved Games > Fallout4 > Saves. – Feral Chimp Nov 12 '15 at 19:50

My PC has the save location at:

$OSDRIVE:\Users\$USER\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\Saves

Where $OSDRIVE is the drive letter of my operating system (windows 7), and $USER is the name of the logged in user.

example: C:\Users\user1234\Documents\My Games\Fallout4\Saves
