I want to delete certain files inside Steam cloud save for a certain game
I have no problem to change any file. This is as easy as starting game, changing file and then exiting game (replacing game exe-file if game is agreessively overrides files upon exit).
But for a quite some time, when I try to use same method to delete any file - it will just reappear, either on exiting game or just before it's started.
Now I've run into a weird problem where for some reasons my save files contains folder which contains underscore
_ in front and this kind of breaks the game: I can't create character with same name. So I would really like to find a solution. Below are my thoughts/attempts.
- How to delete single file from Steam cloud?
I've tried for a few hours to apply solutions found using the google (e.g. this one): disabling/enabling clouds, deleting files at various moments, deleting/editing
remotecache.vdf of corresponding game with or w/o Steam running, etc. etc.
The deleted files just reappear.
Yet during my tries I've never seen
Cloud Sync Conflict Steam dialog and honestly I don't even remember when I saw it last time.
- How to force Cloud Sync Conflict dialog?
I've read that with that dialog I can choose option to take local files as they are, not sure if it will work for deleted files, but I'd like to try it.
- How to directly browse my Steam cloud saves files (not synced content on my PC)?
In theory there could be third party tool or web-site to manually edit content. Potentially there will be the option to delete file.
