How to delete Steam cloud saves

Ever needed to clean up cloud saves in Steam? Unfortunately, that is not possible… However, you can intentionally corrupt the cloud save files to pretend they do not exist… 🤓 1. Get the ID of the game by finding the game on Steam store. For example the URL: http://store.steampowered.com/app/255710/Cities_Skylines/ indicates that the ID of Cities Skylines is 255710 2. Navigate to the Steam folder (not the game install folder) on your hard drive Usually under C:\. For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\YOUR_USER_ID\ 3. Use the game ID to find the folder that matches. For example C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\106530865\255710 4. Run this PowerShell command in the “remote” folder: Note the asterisk at the end! As we cannot simply remove the files we will have to “corrupt” them, making them empty, but still present. Although there are some more steps, this did the trick for me. If it doesn’t work you might have to follow the additional steps here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JADsIv2RUSw
