Why oh why do you need to move the saved games into %appdata%?

Surely all saves for all games should be in one place, namely My Documents/My Games.  Then they are all easy to find in one place, and easy to back up in one lot.

Disappointed.

I completely agree with you, furthermore I don't want any save files or screenshots (high res) on my system drive where space is limited.
Please Devs, make this a path option in the options menu, or I have to start fiddling with MLink again to put it all back where they where "D:\Documents\My Games\FactoryGame".

Yes, exactly.  For me as well it means they are saved on the system drive instead of my larger data drive.

at least the game did copy the files for you to the new location.

They did it because some People were unable to save their games.

I suspect some people had wonky access restrictions for their my documents folder and the game could not write to it, by using the %appdata one of the game they can use a folder which is guaranteed to be writable by the game.
