Boosteroid uses the cloud storage (synchronization) mechanism of other game platforms, where it’s possible (e.g., Steam, Origin). In order to have that mechanism work out, you must correctly complete your game session on Boosteroid through the “quit” button in a video game, wait for the desktop to appear, and then end the session.

For the Steam, Epic, Origin launchers you need to check if the cloud synchronization mechanism is enabled (usually enabled by default).

For the Epic launcher, you can manually trigger the cloud synchronization process after game completion by merely clicking on three dots below the game icon and selecting the appropriate action in the menu.

Not all video games support the option of cloud synchronization. For example, the demo and trial versions of video games do not support that function.

For video games where cloud storage mechanism is not supported, Boosteroid saves the user’s game data and sends it back at the beginning of a new game session on Boosteroid. In this case, if a video game creates files during the game process, the correct quitting from the game is not required.

You can enable cloud saves for all games that support that mechanism (e.g. for the Steam launcher). Click > Steam > Settings > Cloud and check the box.

Problems with cloud saves

In case the "Cloud Sync Conflict" did happen, you need to choose the first option
"download to this machine".

When there is a temporary disruption in the work of the game platform (e.g. Steam, Origin, etc.) cloud synchronization may not happen at once. In this situation, it is suggested to wait for a while and not terminate the session (the browser tab) since when it is already closed - the cloud synchronization will not be completed.

For more information, please review this article (for Steam games). Where all situations and solutions on the topic of the "Steam cloud " are provided.
