SnowRunner: How to Fix Frame Drops when Auto-save Appears (step-by-step Tutorial)

If you are having a frame drops or shuttering when auto-save appears, please follow my steps on this guidance.


Step 1

Find your SnowRunner save files.
They should be somewhere like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\<steam account ID>\1465360\remote

Step 2 [optional]

For safe keeping, backup your contents of the “remote folder” to your desktop.

Step 3

Create a new folder “Snowrunner symlink save” on the same drive as your game is installed.
For me this was my G:\ drive

Then move the contents from “remote” folder to this new “Snowrunner symlink save” folder.

Step 4

Delete the original “remote folder” within the directory from Step 1.

Step 5

In an elevated command prompt, run the command:

mklink /D “E:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\1*******6\1465360\remote” “G:\Snowrunner symlink save” and press ENTER.

You need to change the the drive letter or paths and steam account ID because I can have different paths and steam account ID than you.

For example, if your main SnowRunner save folder was in C:\ drive, and your new “Snorunner symlink save” folder is in “E:\ drive, and your steam account ID is 123456789, do this:
mklink /D “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\123456789\1465360\remote” “E:\Snowrunner symlink save”

Step 6

Test your game. There shouldn’t be frame drops when auto-save appears anymore.
