Hollow Knight can be a challenging title for some, and it was actually on the list of our hardest games that are available in 2023, so any progress you make you’ll definitely want to keep. You have the initial save files in the menu when you play, but on your computer, it can be tough to find exactly where those save files are.
If you are looking to transfer your save files to a different PC, or just looking to back them up to double-check that you’re not going to lose your progress, then follow the guide below.
Hollow Knight saves for Windows
If you downloaded the game via Steam, you will need to follow the following pathway:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Hollow Knight
For regular Windows, use this pathway to find the save game files:
%AppData%\..\LocalLow\Team Cherry\Hollow Knight
However, note that if you’ve been playing Hollow Knight with mods, your save files will be in this folder:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Hollow Knight\hollow_knight_Data\Managed\Mods
Hollow Knight Saves for Mac & Linux
If you downloaded Hollow Knight on Mac, the save file destination is as follows:
~/Library/Application Support/unity.Team Cherry.Hollow Knight
Linux users will find the save files here:
~/.config/unity3d/Team Cherry/Hollow Knight
Once you’ve found the save files, you can either copy, move or delete them as you see fit. Remember that moving the original files will mean they won’t work, so if you’re looking to move them, be sure to make a copy.
