Starfield – Failed to Create Save Game Error Solution

In my case, disabling Windows Defender or firewall was useless, but this method really helped me. I hope that it will be useful to someone else.

How to Fix the Issue

Registry Editor

Change the registry where Documents (and Pictures etc.) are stored via “Registry Editor” app:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders

In these 2 places anything that said OneDrive change it back to default, for example:


  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Documents
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Pictures
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Pictures\Camera Roll
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Pictures\Screenshots
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Videos
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\OneDrive\Music


  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Documents
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Pictures
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Pictures\Camera Roll
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Pictures\Screenshots
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Videos
  • C:\Users\YourUsername\Music

Copy Files

Then copy over the files manually from where the OneDrive moved it back to the default location.

Restart Your PC

Yeah, just restart your PC.
