SAV File Extension

Have a problem opening a .SAV file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what SAV files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .SAV file type?

The SAV file extension is usually assigned to "saved" files created by various PC games, for example "Dune" or "Ancient Domains of Mystery". SAV files enable backing-up user's configuration, character points and game objects to prevent loss of progress.

Savegames in the .sav file format are usually located in the Documents folder on both PC and Mac platforms. When you reload a gaming application, it automatically opens the related .sav file to restore the interrupted session.

SAV files are game-specific, so you need to find the correct gaming application in order to open and run them properly. Some video games allow users to distribute their .sav files to other computers to share game achievements.

Additionally, files containing the SAV extension can be related to IBM SPSS Statistics (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) application used for data collection, statistical analysis and predictive analytics. Such SAV files contain binary data as well as dictionary information related to the dataset.
