Steam Deck Save Directories.

So it looks like the Steam Deck has multiple save directories for you proton games the same way the games on Windows are saved across different directories. Found that these are the places to check for games saves.

  • May be under .config/, .local/
  • Proton saves are stored under .local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/
  • ~/.local/share/NameOfGame

Some games saves aren’t synching- not sure if this is because the game we’re trying has a separate native Linux port or this happens with proton compatible games too. Anyhow. I found out about this from a Reddit thread. Source here >>
