Glossary:Save game cloud syncing
From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
Save game cloud syncing is the process of having save game data automatically synced to cloud storage.
Cloud syncing has a number of benefits:
- Automatic backup protects against catastrophic data loss like hard drive crashes.
- Seamlessly continue a game on another PC without having to manually transfer save data.
- Ability to store save games for long term retrieval (useful for series such as Mass Effect which spanned over 4 years).
