Transferring Skyrim saved games from one machine to another

Is there a way of easily transferring a saved game from one machine to another?

  1. PC to PC
  2. XBox to XBox
  3. PS3 to PS3
  4. Cross platform transfers


This should work for Skyrim just like it does for other games:

For PC to PC, you can go to the “User/Documents/My Games/Skyrim” folder and simply copy the “Saves” folder from one machine to the corresponding folder on the other machine.

For XBox 360, here’s a guide on how to transfer saved games:

  • Put your OLD hard drive into your new XBox 360
  • Log in to your profile
  • Go to the profile management
  • Move your profile onto the Memory Unit
  • Examine your hard drive with memory management tool
  • Move the game to your memory unit with Move option
  • Turn off and remove the old hard drive
  • Then put the new hard drive
  • Log in as the profile from the memory unit
  • Transfer all the game save files

For PS3, here’s a good video guide on how to generally move save games and here’s a guide on how to transfer save games from PC to the PS3, although it’s possible that this just works with saved games which are originally from a PS3.
