Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is the latest game from Dark Souls creators From Software, which will challenge you like no other game - so it's terrifying that there are reports of Sekiro save corruption on PC, so you'll need to back up your saves.
The Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice save game corruption issue seems to happen at random, so until (and if) the issue is patched it'll be good for you to make copies of your Sekiro save files in case there are any problems. Below we'll show you where is the Sekiro save location and how to backup your save games in Sekiro. Just don't use it to cheat, okay?
How to Deal with the Sekiro Save Corruption Issue and Backup Your Save Games
If you've ever had any concrete experience with backing-up video game files on PC before, you're not going to have much trouble doing with Sekiro, either. All you need to do is go to the following location and copy everything you find to a safe folder elsewhere on your drive:
- C:\Users\ - username - \Appdata\Roaming\Sekiro\
This is going to ensure that save game corruption doesn't make everything you've accomplished as part of your Sekiro career vanish, and it would generally be a good idea to back things up periodically. Furthermore, if you're constantly ALT+F4-ing Sekiro, do note that you are probably risking save corruption, too. Stick with the game's integrated quit options, and you should be good for the most part.
