Windows Save File Location

FYI: My saves are stored under Appdata\Roaming\StardewValley\Saves. However, using the method described on the page (and by ConcernedApe on the Chucklefish forums) still works -- Windows finds the "Roaming" subfolder and opens it.
I am curious if the saves are stored directly under "AppData" on Win10, since I'm using Win7. margotbean (talk) 19:07, 17 September 2017 (BST)

Nope, it's the same path in Windows 10. The %appdata% part is a shortcut understood by Windows which resolves to your application data folder (usually C:\users\<username>\Appdata\Roaming). —Pathoschild (talk) 04:40, 18 September 2017 (BST)
Thanks for the reply! I thought Windows was actually being smart about searching the whole AppData folder, but then I moved "Saves" to "Local" and then "LocalLow" and Windows couldn't find it either time. So, it seems %AppData% = the "Roaming" folder only. TIL today. Now if I could only figure out why it takes 10 seconds for the game to find my saves.... margotbean (talk) 18:22, 18 September 2017 (BST)
