Here’s how to stick your save games in the excellent Dropbox so you can share them across computers or just have an online backup.
- Get Dropbox. The link above will give me and you an extra 250Mb of storage but if you prefer to go directly to the site feel free: www.Dropbox.com.
- Get Link Shell Extension. You’ll use this to link your Dropbox back into where the Skyrim saves should be.
- Find your Skyrim save files. On my system they’re in: C:\Users<username>\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves.
- Find your Dropbox folder. On my system they’re in: C:\Users<username>\Documents\Dropbox. You can just right click on the Dropbox icon in the system tray and select Open Dropbox folder to find it.
- Move your Skyrim saves folder to wherever you want it in Dropbox. I suggest a folder called Skyrim in your Dropbox folder but you might want a different structure. If you want to be extra safe just copy the folder instead of moving it and rename the original to something like saves.backup.
- Here’s where you use Link Shell Extension. Right click on the saves folder in your Dropbox and select Pick Link Source, go back to C:\Users<username>\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\, right click in some blank space and select Drop As.. then Junction.
- That’s it. Your Skyrim saves should now be ensconced in Dropbox.
Note that Skyrim saves are pretty big and seem to get bigger the longer you play. I would recommend you overwrite saves rather than creating a new save each time if you don’t want to use up your Dropbox allowance pretty quickly.
EDIT: The superb Lifehacker has an article detailing other ways to do this. I’d steer clear of SyncToy for this one though.
Check out the new game from HogRocket. I was lucky enough to give this a go before launch and it was great fun. I’m however not quite lucky enough to own an iThing so I guess I’ll have to cross my fingers for an Android release. Click the image for a linky.
See this screenshot? Just a normal minecraft forest right?
Cunningly disguised as a tree there is a rad as fuck tree house i made, i bet you didn’t even see it god-damn it’s so beautiful.
