Maybe I am just getting older but I can't find a file on my computer that is probably supposed to be there Win 7. Browneyedtigre was kind enough tell tell me where the Saves are store for Syberia 3 but I can't find it anywhere on my computer even doing a Search. Am I doing something wrong? AppData/LocalLow/Microids/Syberia3

There are two more things in front of appData, one is Users and the other is the computer name you gave your computer at start-up.

Hi Geo, thanks for the reply.
It has been so long I don't remember what name the computer has. Is there a way to find out?

When you go to the users folder I am fairly sure the computer name will stand out and you will be reminded.
I would do this in Windows Explorer where everything is listed with easy access.
The other way would be to go to search under the start button and type dxdiag. It will be listed there on the first page.

I appreciate the help Geo but I am not following. Any chance you could give me the full path typed out because when I do a search for the Computers name I find in DXDIAG it comes up with nothing. It also doesn't show anything for Appdata, LocalLow or Microids or except for the .exe file Syberia 3 either, isn't that strange? And I didn't think Windows Explorer came with Win7.

Greyfuss,

First be sure that you have ticked on - show hidden files - on your folders.
- To do that in Windows 7:

Select the Start button, then select Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization.
Select Folder Options, then select the View tab.
Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then select OK.

To locate AppData/LocalLow/Microids/Syberia3:
- Open computer OS C drive.
- Open Users folder.
- Open your computer's name's folder.
- Open AppData folder.
- Open LocalLow folder.
- Open Microids folder.
- Open Syberia 3 folder.
luck
