- Go to the directory: C:\Users\[username]\Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII Steam\user_xxxxxx\
- Find and copy the save slot wish you like -> The file name is like slot1_save02.ff8

[username] = Your computer username.
user_xxxxxx = The x can be a random number like user_123456.
[randomnumber] = This can be a different number in every PC like ...\Steam\12341198011061110\...
- You can rename anytime the slot and save number -> slot1_save04.ff8.
