There’s been a lot of talk lately about backing up save files, so I thought I’d share a method I’ve used with previous Souls games to backup my saves and launch the game with a single batch file.
Here’s the batch file I use;
TITLE Elden Ring - Backup Saves
FOR /F "skip=1" %%D IN ('WMIC OS GET LocalDateTime') DO (SET LIDATE=%%D & GOTO :GOT_LIDATE)
SET dir=%dir:T= %
cd /d "%dir%"
xcopy /s %appdata%\EldenRing\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\*.* .
Replace “XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX” with your unique directory name, so the line becomes as such;
xcopy /s %appdata%\EldenRing\164736498762864\*.* .
If you would like to just backup only, and not launch the game, you can comment out the “start steam://rungameid/1245620” line as such;
or remove it completely.
The batch file will create a new directory each time you run it, and label it based on local date and time as below, and copy the save files across;
Here is an example of what the batch file window will look like;
