Where are Kongregate save files located?

I have been playing on Kongregate for quite a while now, and in that time I haven’t cleaned out my temporary internet files, cookies, or any of the like. I like to use CCleaner to keep my computer rid of extra files, but I haven’t run it in months because I don’t want to delete any part of a Kong game that I have saved. Where are all of the possible locations of a Kong save file, and what are all of the things I would have to except from a CCleaner sweep?

On a Windows system, Flash shared objects are stored in
C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#Shared Objects\
In a subfolder with a unique name. Inside that folder, they are organised by website – you want to exclude kongregate.com, a.kongregate.com, chat.kongregate.com and www.kongregate.com.

Thanks. I assume I can delete all my cookies.

It has to be there, you either looked in a wrong place or you didn’t look hard enough. Take note that ‘Application Data’ is a hidden folder, so enable hidden folders.

Would clearing you browser cache delete saves? (Does my browser being safari make a difference? Or that I’m on a Mac?)

No.

Weeeiiiiiiirrrrrrd! I guess people don’t have much to post here.

Edit: I guess some threads just attract more attention than the others. For example: How to make a banhammer.

Wanted to get this out there for people who come on wondering about their OS. File locations for your potential OS.

For windows 7 users:

C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects

There’s a folder there that has all subfolders related to kongregate’s saved games (should look something like this: FKFVJZLE or something else). Add this folder to the exceptions on ccleaner and it’s good.

Thanks for the Windows 7 tips. I wonder if we can carry around our save files by copying it and pasting it to another computer.

Check your cookie jar :D

Tested moving my save files from a Windows 7 PC to an Internet Cafe PC with XP. Saved games loads just fine. :)

Nice, I just realized that flash has been saving my browser history with these .sol files. :)

If I remember correctly:
C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\{random numbers and letters}\chat.kongregate.com

Somewhere out there in the vast nothingness of space… Somewhere out there in space and time… staring upward at the gleaming stars in the obsidian sky… marrooned on a small island, in an endless see, confined to a tiny spit of sand, unable to escape.
+1 musics to you if you know what that’s from.

Well, folks, a crisis.

I’m on a Win 7 laptop — in Italian — and as luck would have it, just cleared all my saved data by mistake on the Adobe website. The settings showed up in Italian. So months of progress on Gemcraft: Chapter 0 seem to be gone.

Anybody know how to restore deleted cache files from Flash player? Any temp folder where these might be at? There’s nothing in the Recycle Bin.

Thanks.

It’s not possible, sorry.
