Steam Cloud Saves Out of Sync?
I am playing having a blast playing Starfield on my desktop computer and my laptop on the go, and I have noticed that, despite Steam claiming the Cloud saves are In Sync, whatever device I'm moving to (Desktop to Laptop or vice-versa) my last few saves will be missing.

I've tried testing this by advancing a quest line, or landing at a random planet then making a Save, and the other device will sometimes download a few autosaves, or one of the prior Manual saves, but it will never quite be fully sync'd up with my latest saves.

Has anyone noticed, this, or have any insight on how to get Cloud saves working properly in Starfield?

I've played many many many other cloudsave-enabled Steam games back and forth between my laptop and desktop and have not run into this before.

Do you make sure the game ends correctly when you close it everytime?
Do you get any message that you need to chose which save you want to keep when it syncs?

I'm seeing this as well moving between two PCs. One of them (main gaming PC) seems to reliably keep the cloud in sync with its latest saves, but the other will "sometimes" upload a few new saves and then just not do any more. Exiting steam, making new saves, etc all don't seem to help. They're not visible on the online webpage view of steam cloud saves either. Plenty of other games work fine syncing between the two PCs so I'm pretty sure it's a Starfield-specific issue, not some generic issue.

Oh man Ive only had problems with Steams cloud save feature. I turned it off so long ago. Best to avoid it IMO.
sometimes yes. guess its not fully working curenntly.

Yup.

Only with this game. I have to resync it manually every time i exit the game.

Okay and here I thought it was my internet doing that, but I guess maybe it's also this game?
In the properties of the game (Library < starfield < right click < properties), I just turned STeam Cloud synchronisation off and on. This worked for me: the new save files appeared.

Hi is there any way to resync manually?

It is completely broken. Before turning of the PC I'm sending my last save to my Telegram IM, then I can recover that file from Telegram and copy it manually to the save folser to any PC. A bummer manual job.

I get it every time I turn off the game. Hasn't been an issue yet though.

Mine was working flawlessly till some days ago, then started to have random syncs and now nothing. Last saves I have on the cloud are from sept 9. Checked the AV, Firewall, files integrity eyc etc.

Yea. It didn't do this the first few days of playing then all the sudden a couple days ago it started doing it.

I'm having the same issue, never had cloud sync fail like this with any other game, super frustrating.

Mine worked as expected for 40 hours, and then stopped. Won't sync. Updated PC/Drivers/Steam, reinstalled the game. It's like it wont sync the past 20 hours.

I have the same, everything worked till a few days ago. The game save says its synced but it's not. The amount of hours played is correct in between the devices. But like I said the game saves are not syncing. Switching on and off cloud saves on the main device did not help.
