Yuzu is a fantastic piece of software that allows you to play Switch games on your PC in the event that your Switch dies etc. It’s easy to use, runs exceptionally well and has just about everything you could ever want from a piece of software of this kind. The only downside is that it’s a little complicated to find stuff for.

So if you are using YuZu to play games and would like to make a backup of all your save data to store for safekeeping or continue playing on another device. This article will show you exactly where the save data for each game is located and how to move it to different locations so you can start from the exact same spot you were up to.

For instance, you can copy your YuZu saved games from your desktop PC to your Laptop and load them up right away. Alternatively, you could just store them in another location for safekeeping. So where exactly are YuZu saves kept?

How do you move all of your saves from YuZu to a different computer?

If you would rather just copy and paste all the saves for all of your games from Yuzu you can do the following. This is my preferred method as well. However, be careful not to overwrite save data with the wrong files if you choose this option.

First, open File Explorer on your computer, then navigate to the following location on your computer.


Here you will see the YuZu folder near the bottom of the list. Simply copy the folder and paste it into the same location on your other device. Just make sure that you have YuZu installed first. Alternatively, you can open Start and search %appdata% and it will take you to the same location. As we mentioned earlier you do need to be very careful when moving these files between computers because you may accidentally overwrite newer saves with older ones. I’ve accidentally done this before and it’s not a lot of run having to restart things. Especially in games like Pokemon Arceus which has a lot of random chance involved.
