Now that Fallout Shelter has released on Steam I would like to use my save-files off the Bethesda launcher function. I already copied the save-files of the Bethesda launcher and have them on my PC. However I am unable to locate where the save files are for the Steam function. Anyone can tell me?

  • Most games store in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common

For the Steam version your saves are under : C:\Users\<Your User Name>\AppData\Local\FalloutShelter.

To access it press Windows + R, type %localappdata%, press enter. Then browse to the FalloutShelter directory.

Your saves are like VaultX.sav and VaultX.sav.bkp.
