If your Baldur’s Gate 3 save files aren’t working, we have a couple of solutions for you to try.

Larian Studios suggested that the main culprit of this issue might be any Antivirus software denying permission to the game. If this is the case, you can add LariLauncher.exe file to your antivirus system’s trusted apps, which might have blocked it automatically.

However, if you already have the LariLauncher.exe file as a trusted app, and you’re still experiencing problems while creating a manual save, you can try the following methods:

  • Delete your old saved game files manually on your PC:
    • You’ll have to go to your User Folder. There, you should open AppData, then Local, go to the Larian Studios folder, and when getting into Baldur’s Gate 3, you should delete the BG3 folder.
  • Verify the integrity of Steam game files via Properties>Browse Local Files window.
  • Turn off cloud saves, delete the game and reinstall Baldur’s Gate 3. Make sure to delete all your saved files from Cloud Sync.
  • Check for any Firewall software that might be blocking access to Baldur’s Gate 3 files.
  • Launch the game directly from its .exe file. If this works, exit the game and turn off cloud saves on Steam.
