How to find the local copy of your Cloud savegames (whether Ironman or not):

C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/userdata/<YOUR STEAM ID>/859580/remote/save games/

You can see what is in your cloud storage, from when, here:

Different location for save files and screenshots

By default, the game puts the save files and screenshots into your Documents folder (see above). If you would prefer them to be kept in a different location, you can change this. Here is how:

Go to the location of the actual game files. A common location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ImpertorRome\game\. Here, manually create a plain text file named userdir.txt. In this text file, put the path of where you would like the game to put save files and screenshots, e.g. D:\Miscellaneous\IRstuff\. (You can delete the folder in My Documents and restart the game, it will create its files in the new location.). If you put a simple dot (=period, full stop) in the userdir.txt file the user files will be created in that same folder.

IMPORTANT: Before you do this, backup your save games, screenshots, etc, so that nothing is lost!
