The save game files for Fallout Shelter for Windows 10 can be found in

%appdata%\Local\Packages\BethesdaSoftworks.FalloutShelter_3275kfvn8vcwc\SystemAppData\wgs\LONG_ENCRYPTED_CODE\ANOTHER_LONG_ENCRYPTED_CODE\your saves here

Common errors:

  • If you cannot see hidden files, go onto the 'View' tab within the Explorer, and tick 'Hidden items'.
  • If you cannot go into the packages folder, firstly right-click and go into 'Properties'. Then go under the security tab and click 'Edit' by the 'To change permissions, click Edit' text. You then have to click 'Add' after the pop-up comes up. In the text box, type your email address tied with your windows 10 account and click on 'Check names', if it is correct, it will allow you to continue into the folder after clicking 'Okay'.

Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\FalloutShelter\

  • Open the File Explorer
  • Paste %LOCALAPPDATA%\FalloutShelter\
  • Press Enter
