Glossary:Save game cloud syncing
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).
