[Solved] Cloud Sync on different computers - problems
I have my main pc, where I have a lvl 20 char.
I install torchlight on another computer and torchlight reports that this char is only lvl 2.
How do I force Steam to ignore my local files and re-download the cloud files to confirm that my cloud files are out of date? If they are, I have to dial home and have someone 'exercise' my char on my home PC to force a cloud sync and update.

Edit: I confirmed cloud was enabled in Steam then re-ran Steam on my home computer, ran the char around a bit. Let the cloud sync and re-ran on the other computer. Cloud sync dialog displayed and I was able to see my full char.

I can't get my sync to work between my home and work computers , CLoud says unable to sync files and I cant see my char from home computer. Not sure what can be done :(

After updating TorchLight, sync failed... Then I restarted steam again, after configuring it to run as Administrator (on vista). And TorchLight synced instantly...
Was it the Admin-rights, was it the restart? No clue.

This game has a bunch of problems with steam cloud, honestly. Your best option until it's fixed is to just turn off steam cloud and use another method to copy your files. Dropbox is a great option if you don't have SD cards or flashdrives and have internet enabled on the other computer.

I have Steam Cloud Saves enabled... It's not syncing properly and I have try restarting Steam and running as Admin on both PCs...
At home I have a Level 30+ Embermage and Level 18 Engineer (primarily where I play).
At work however, my Embermage is Level 28, I don't have the Level 18 Engineer and I have a Level 3 (test character) Outlander (which doesn't show up at home)...

SHIVA64: How can I get it so that all characters appear on both machines? ie How do I update it? Just copy over the character data from the My Documents/my games/Runic Games/torchlight 2/save/<random numbers>/Character files?

Grab the save folder itself, and copy it over to the same "My Documents/my games/Runic Games/torchlight 2/" directory. If it asks you to overwrite/merge the save folder, say yes. Shouldn't have any problems from that! Just make sure to keep steam cloud off for the time being until there's confirmation that there isn't all these bugs with it anymore.

Well, you should still have your backups which would be made regularly and hopefully to a couple of external devices. Regardless of problems with Steam Cloud ALL electronic devices have an EOL (end-of-life) and are guaranteed to fail. Soooo, backups should be a given.
