Save files not working

Hey guys, I pirated the game and decided to buy it. I have cloud saves turned off* both the pirated and the legit copy.

When I copy and paste my save files from the pirated version to the legit versions directory (I am saving it to the correct place) my characters are not appearing in the legit version. Any help with this would be appreciated, I’ve spent 50 odd hours in game and would rather not roll a new character because of this.

Edit: Found the correct place where the save files were being loaded from by creating a dummy character and searching it in windows in case anyone was wondering.

The file location for saves is “\My Documents\My Games\Grim Dawn\save”

The stickied thread How to - Move your saves from Steam cloud to Grim Dawn’s default location. has even more info on save locations for Steam cloud and non-Steam cloud.
