Character Data Files

Contains information about files that are specific to each character.

Data files are xxx.dat files generally located in the XIV client folder and sub folders at <..>\Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn\.

The FFXIV Character Creator saves presets, when saving a character appearance at the end of character creation, in a file called FFXIV_CHARA_XX.dat where XX is the preset slot number from 01 to 40.

All data related to characters that have been used on the current machine is saved in a folder called FFXIV_CHRxxxx where xxxx is a unique ID for the character.

This folder contains *.dat files for character settings, hotbars and UI configuration, macros and so on, as well as a log folder containing the chat logs.
