    Bought new SSD, trying to transfer save data from old to new one


    I made a lot of progress in My Time in Portia which is quite a grindy game and I'm really keen on continuing from where I left off. Both my SSDs are plugged in and working right now and I'm just trying to figure out how to access the save files from the
    old SSD and transferring them to my new one. I've found where the game "files" are at in appdata local but pretty much all the folders are empty. The only workaround I can think of is restarting my pc and setting boot priority to my old SSD whenever I want
    to play but that's obviously a huge hassle.

    :)

    My time at Portia, surprisingly good game.

    If using a windows install you should be able to just move the game folders to the new drive like any other file. The game save files may be hidden and thats why the folders appear empty or you could have changed the same save location to another local folder.
    Havent played the PC version so you could try checking the game settings for save location option or explorer search for the save name if you know it.

    Edit: For clarity the entire game file should be able to be transferred in one go, verses just the save files.

    If you have the steam version its a simple process iirc.

    1. In the launcher, go to steam, settings, downloads, steam library folder, add library. Select your new drive from drop down, keep it as default name for simplicity.

    2. Now go to Library, find the game, right click, properties, local file, move install folder, select newly created library.

    It's on the Xbox beta game app, hence where I posted this...

    I've looked through countless topics regarding this and no one seems to know where Microsoft keeps the save files for the app. Even though I knew it wasn't going to do anything, I copied over the appdata game "files" from the old SSD to the new one and it
    didn't do anything.

    change microsoft account

    Hello, so you mean you create a new account and want to transfer the contenue from the old account to the new one?

    Unfortunately is not possible. Any sort of data and content that is downloaded/saved on one gamertag is not transferable to another account.

    Any USB stick can transfer data from one hardrive to the other, i remember transferring my resident evil 5 save from my old xbox to my new xbox.

    Playing original games cost 800 microsoft points

    You can always use the transfer cable to move your data from the old hard drive to your new one. This would also save your saved games. If that is not an option you may need to use the license transfer on the xbox website.
