If you're just starting out in Baldur's Gate 3, then beware there's a bug that might prevent you from saving.
There have been multiple reports from players claiming the game gets stuck when syncing, preventing them from saving or loading the game.
Larian Studios is aware of the issue and has updated its FAQ for the game with a number of possible solutions.
Those solutions include shutting down Windows Defender, deleting the LevelCache folder in case of corrupted files, and verifying local files.
Some players have also suggested turning off cloud sync in the game (thanks IGN).
