When Stardew Valley launched Steam on PC in 2016, it was an instant hit to get the RPG agriculture simulator genre back on track. Before its release, we did not see much in this particular area of the game, which drew the attention of the general public. Since then, the mega-hit Stardew Valley has found its way into the mobile world of Android and iOS.
If you've played the game in the past on Steam on your computer, you might be interested in Mobile now that it was recently launched on Android. Then you would also be curious if your backup file can also be transferred to the mobile version. This is not the case by default, but this guide tells you what to do to transfer the backup file from your computer to your phone.
: Find Your Saved Game File
As long as you still have the saved game on your computer from the last time you played it, it's pretty easy to find. If you already know that the backup file no longer exists – for example, if you have uninstalled the PC game, you will need to download the game again from Steam, but then your backup data will automatically be retrieved from the cloud.  To move this backup data to your phone, you must first locate the Stardew storage folder on your computer. Once you find it, you'll need to copy the folder and move it to your phone. Below I show you how to find this folder on all three major desktop operating systems.
The name of the folder should match the name of your character so that it looks familiar to you. If you have multiple characters or save files, a folder is displayed for each of them.
Windows The easiest way is to press the Windows key + R to bring up the execution dialog. In the text box, paste the following command and press Enter. This opens an Explorer window where you can simply copy the storage folder.

You just need to open the Finder and click "Start" in the menu bar at the top of the screen and then "Go to Folder". In the text box, you must type the following file path followed by the Enter key:
~ / .config / StardewValley / Saves
Just go into "Files," then in "Go," and finally enter "Place." ". In the text box, type the following file path followed by the Enter key:
~ / .config / StardewValley / Saves
Now you want to connect your Android phone on your computer so you can transfer the saved file. As usual, attach the internal memory of your phone to your computer via a USB cable. If you're using a Mac, you'll need an app like Android File Transfer or HandShaker to run this part.
Now, use your computer to navigate to the root of your phone's internal memory or SD card. In most cases, this will be the first folder opened when you browse your phone's memory from your computer. If you are not sure if you are in the correct folder, look for other folders named "Android", "Movies" and "Pictures" as these default folders are stored in the root directory of each phone's internal memory.  Next, you may need to create a folder named "StardewValley" if you have not started a new game on your phone yet. Once you've done that, simply copy the saved game folder from your computer and paste it into the StardewValley folder in your phone's memory.
That's all there is nothing complicated here! The next time you start Stardew Valley on your phone and load a backup file, you should see the file you just transferred from your computer.
If you're making great progress on your phone and want it to be transferred back to your phone, repeat the above steps in reverse order to achieve this. This has the advantage of having Steam sync your saved game with the cloud, so you do not have to worry about losing it at any point. There are no restrictions or restrictions on how often you can transfer your saved game back and forth.
