Is there a way to know save game locations? (Deus Ex: HR and TML)

I want to completely wipeout the old save files from playing DX and the expansion. Just deleting it from the Steam folders is not sufficient because the games occasionally save locally.

In this case I can see a "dxhr" and "tml" folders somewhere in the AppData folders.
But I still would like confirmation before deleting them.

Is there a site or a program that lists all the possible locations for each game?

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

You can always dig it out of the recycle bin if you've made a mistake.

I bet it took you the entire 60 minutes to come up with that clever reply. Every result on google always points to the Steam's directory, not the local ones. And if I start the game, even with SteamCloud disabled, it will grab the old local files. And I need the game 100% reset to try one achievement I hear it's bugged.

@Rolen:
Usually I SHIFT+Delete stuff. I suppose I could even quarantine it in some other folder, but what if it belongs to another program?
The thing here is that I always have thise issue when I want to completely wipeout the data from a game or to backup save games.

Can't you just fire up the game and delete the saves from there? It definitely works for Deus Ex Human Revolution and it's DLC. Which achievement are you trying to get? I got them all without problems so I can clarify stuff.

I'm gonna atempt the No Alerts one. I heard if there was a save with a playthrough that had set an alarm off it wouldn't give the achievement.

If you can't figure out how to make something simple work with google, perhaps you need to consider not using computers.

Not sure about it, but after I finished the game I just deleted all the old saves with the in-game prompts, then started a new game. Finished the game without alarms and got the achievement. Just watch out for actual alarms lol, I actually set one off without knowing and had to load an earlier save.
