Completely deleting singleplayer saves?
For some reason I can't find how to do this anywhere.. Does anyone know where the save files are, or the option to clear saves ingame? My saves got corrupted and it's asking me to accept the eula everytime I start up the game, then it says I have to finish the prologue to play online for some reason, and sends me into singleplayer.

Solution:
You can delete everything under "C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\(profile number)" EXCEPT for pc_setttings.bin, to keep your settings. This will delete your singleplayer saves and you'll just have to accept the EULA and play the prologue one more time.

Well ingame you can do it like this:
Pause menu (Esc) -> Game -> Load Game -> Choose the save game -> Press Space Bar -> Press Enter to confirm the removal of the save

Outside of the game, I'm not 100% sure if it is like this but if you go to "C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\" and then open the folder there, you can see files named "SGTAXXXXX".
On GTA IV those files were the save games, however I'm not sure if its the same thing for V. I mean "SGTA" would indicate "SavegameGTA" or just "SaveGTA" but like I mentioned, I'm not sure, so try copying the files to your desktop (or some other place like that) and delete the ones contained in that folder and open the game to see what happens :P

I got it to stop doing it now, thanks.

Actually, it's still doing it. I was told that deleting everything under /documents//Rockstar games/ GTAV/ would fix it, but it will delete my settings and I don't want that.

Turn off cloud saves.

Edit: Nevermind, i read that wrong.

Just delete them. It won't take a couple seconds to reset the settings. Take screenshots of them if you want to easily remember them.

Having a similar issue.
I started a new game, did the prologue, saved and quit. And every time I started the game to go online I would have to do the same thing with the EULA. So I figured if I deleted my new game and kept my 100% completed save it would go back to normal, but it still makes me accept the EULA and sends me to single player.
I can go online, and still use my character, but I have to go through all of this first every time.
Even my current 100% save game doesn't show the map fully explored anymore. Did starting another game break my first save?

This solution worked for me. My save file was corrupted when the game froze during saving, forcing me to close the game in the middle of saving a game.

Edit: I deleted all folders in the directory listed above. When I attempted to load my corrupted save, the game would just be stuck on "Loading story mode..." so do try to delete all folders in the directory listed above if you are having the problems I had.

it "WONT" take a couple seconds? What the hell are you on about?
So it will take minutes? Hours?

I deleted my save game by accident by pressing the spacebar. I was used to pressing spacebar a lot from other games. It deleted the autosave then the file I was using. For more context I didn't read the orange letters to "DELETE". It was a lot of work gone. I couldn't find how to fix it and was panicking tbh. I won't start a new thread because I don't make tutorials and this is the most relevent search on the first page of google, but I could restore my save file.
I made a copy the .bak file and then deleted the suffix in this file, in this folder: C:\Users\Your Name\Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA V\Profiles\(XXXXXXXX). Phew.
