The Steam client is a digital distribution platform by Valve Corporation. This platform is widely used for downloading, purchasing, and playing video games on PC. It was launched back in 2003 and since then, it has become one of the most popular gaming platforms for PC. However, like any other gaming platform, Steam also has a variety of bugs and technical glitches including “Steam Cloud Error.” This error shows that Steam couldn’t sync your local files to the Steam Cloud. It occurs due to some temporary issues or something wrong with your network. Thankfully, there are a few things you can try to fix Steam Cloud Error.

Fixing Steam Cloud Error

The Steam Cloud is a great way to back up and transfer saved files. However, Steam sometimes doesn’t work properly and throws errors like “Steam Cloud Error”. Thankfully, there are multiple methods you can try to fix this problem.

1. First of all, make sure Steam servers are up and running fine. You can check its status on Downdetector OR OR the Official Twitter page. In case the servers are down, you can wait until the services are back online and the error will get eliminated automatically.

2. The next thing you can do is to make sure Cloud sync is enabled in Steam. For this: Go to Steam client >> Steam menu >> Settings >> Cloud tab >> Check “Enable Steam Cloud synchronization for applications that support it”. Once done, relaunch your game and the error should be fixed.

3. If that doesn’t work too, make sure your internet connection is fast and stable. A poor and unstable connection can cause multiple errors including Steam cloud errors. You can also try resetting your router or modem.

4. The next method we recommend is to verify the integrity of game files and fix any missing or corrupted game files. For this: Go to Steam Library >> Right-click on your game >> Properties >> Local Files >> Verify the integrity of game files.

5. If the error still persists, try disabling your firewall or antivirus program temporarily as it might prevent the Steam client from functioning properly. 

6. It is less likely but your VPN services are also one of the culprits behind the Steam Cloud Error. So, try disabling your VPN service if you are using it and then check if the error is fixed.

7. Repairing the Steam Library Folder should be your next move to resolve the error. Here are the steps:

– Go to the Steam menu

– Select Settings

– Go to the Downloads tab

– Click on “Steam Library Folders” from the right-hand panel

– Click on three horizontal dots and then select “Repair Folder”

– Once the process is done, the error should be fixed

That’s everything you can try to fix Steam Cloud errors.
