Resident Evil 4 Remake: How to find Save and Config files

Save File Location

Players searching for the save files have to go to the default location which is

  • <Steam folder>/userdata/<your Steam user id>/<RE4 ID>/win64_save.

Players wondering what the RE4 ID means is the game ID of Resident Evil 4 Remake. Similarly, you should have your Steam folder at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam.

This is for players who have not changed the destination of their installation folder to any other drive. Even if you have your “steamapps” folder somewhere else, this aforementioned location remains the same. 

For those who have more than one Steam ID, you will come across several folders within the “userdata” folder. Players looking for their present Steam user ID have to open their Steam Inventory and choose Trade Offers. Select “Who can send me Trade Offers” and move down to “Third-Party Sites.”

Players will be able to view their Trade URL and the numbers that appear after “https://steamcommunity.com/tradeoffer/new/?partner=” is your current user ID for Steam.
