    Store Games – Where is “Save Game” File?


    Every Game I’ve Install on my PC Desktop, have a “File” where that Game is been saved.
    Like: Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming|Realore\FarmUp. But with the Store Games
    I just can’t find that “File” so that when and if I needed to Format the HHD or have to put in a new Motherboard, I can just reinstall the Game and get it to where I was by just put the Info of that
    “Save File” into the original file.
    I have Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Centre/Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E6550 @ 2.33GHz 2.34 GHz/8.00 GB RAM/32-bit.
    The Games that I want the save-file for is: FarmUp and Ice Age.
    Please help, I hate to lose what I’ve already achieve with my Games.

    Not sure if this will help, but try to copy all files in this folder.
    C:\Program Files\WindowsApps
    It's just a hidden folder. Try to access it.

    To get access, is above my knowledge! I have all the Hidden files, unhidden, but to get access to WindowsApps is for me impossible. I did get through “Users/User/AppData” but it is just not there?

    Or maybe Windows Store put the Games under a “new” name?

    When I open like you show: I keep on getting: WindowsApps / You have been denied permission to access this folder / to gain access use “security tab” But I just don’t know what to do next?

    I just can’t get access to WindowsApp? I’ve tried everything and read whatever I could get, but none wear successful. Isn’t there an easier way to just get the Save file, for any Store Game?
