Move MineCraft Dungeons character to a different PC?

I’ve been playing Minecraft Dungeons since day one on my laptop and now I’d like to change to my desktop instead.

It doesn’t seem like my character comes over to the new machine when I sign in with my Xbox account.

How can I port him over so I don’t have to start from scratch?

As of this moment there is no official way to transfer your save file to another computer.

An official fix way would be to go to

C:\Users\"Your user name"\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Lovika_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Local\Dungeons

This is all of the assumption this is the location of your character file.

The folder with a bunch of numbers is your character save file, copy that folder to the other computer and place it in the same spot.

Then you should be good to go!

I tried to copy the characters folder from in there and I get a 'Your organisation does not allow this' message - how/why is that folder locked to prevent copying? Especially as there's no other method to store your characters.

If you are asking about moving your XBOX save to PC, sadly not, since Minecraft Dungeons is not a play-anywhere title.

Hello!

As it seems to me, despite the user having full permissions over the "Microsoft.Lovika_8wekyb3d8bbwe" folder and its subfolders, the save games (at least from the Game Pass version) are now encrypted, moving the save file to another location breaks the encryption, and copying the entire folder in which the file is contained is not permitted. Perhaps it was a countermeasure to prevent people from modifying their saves with external tools. I do not think there is a way around it anymore (I could find some scripts that automated backing up your save data over reddit, but the post was 20 days old, i tried it and it doesn't work anymore, saying that "the file could not be encrypted", so I think they changed something with the last update).

Hello all, 
 

 

As this is an old thread, I will be locking this one. Updates, games and everything changes often so would be best to create a new thread. Once a new thread is created we will be happy to assist you in any issues or questions you might have. 
 
 

Thanks, 
Brad 

Stay safe have fun. GAME HARD just not too hard :) ಠ益ಠ
