Thread: Grand Theft Auto V Save Game location

  1. #1

    Grand Theft Auto V Save Game location

    I need to re-install my GTA 5 as it is lagging since the beginning itself. But i want to backup my save files before doing the same. So, wanted to know where does GTA 5 saves all the progress on Windows 8.1? I searched all My Documents folders but i cannot see it anywhere, like it use to be there in earlier GTA games. Has the location changed because of Windows 8?

    Is yes, please let me know what is the Save game location for GTA 5? Thank you.

    Re: Grand Theft Auto V Save Game location

    Earlier GTA games used to keep the save files under Document folder until GTA 3. Since GTA 4, it was changed to another location which is under an hidden folder, AppData. So, i guess they carried the same trend for Grand Theft Auto V save games also. You must get the save files at:

    C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA V\savegames

    To reach this folder, open Windows Explorer > View > Options > Change folder and search option > View tab > Show Hidden files, folders, or drives.

    Savegames folder when you pass atleast one save checkpoint. In other words, it will appear after you save the game atleast once.

    I've heard many users see many other folders under \savegame folder. For them, you must check \savegames\user_somenumbers folder. The saves will be saved here.

    It is like this in Windows 10 > %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\<your-id>
