Looking for a way to force noncloud supported games to save to the cloud

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a bad habit of reformats, as a result I end up losing game progress a lot (looking at you American/euro truck sim) sadly some games just do not have cloud support on steam, I know there is gane save manager, but to be honest I dont like it for a few reasons.

 

I am hoping someone knows of some kinda application, where I can direct it to particular folders/files and when its run it will take those files, see if they were updated and automatically throw them into my onedrive (ideally, I will use another drive service if I have too) I was also thinking of getting google drive on my machine and pointing it to save folders and it just uploadng those files every night or whatever. 

Anyone have an idea/solution to my problem?

In doing my research I have seen symlink mentioned a ton of times I have NO IDEA how to set something like this up though, I still dont even fully know what it is and read somewhere it royally screwed someones steam library  If I have to do this I wwill tryy to learn it.... but a more turn key solution would be preferred

Then i open elevated command prompt and navigate to the game folder. Then i run mklink command.

You will see a newly created folder with shortcut icon, when you open that folder it will bring you to the folder you just moved into Onedrive.

 

The command is 

mklink /D <Link> <Target>

use /D parameter for directory/folder softlink
