Personally I would let the user choose the location to save if possible.

I know on my desktop I hate it when any program tries to put anything on my C drive. I also know there are many people out there that feel the same way. Being able to choose the save location of such a feature is something the players of your game are almost certain to ask for, and if not implemented you are bound to get some "angry" people for it.

If there is a way to prompt the user a path selection that would work for all the future snapshots, then yes. But so far i just allowed the users to save each snapshot where they want, which resulted in annoyance since the selection pops-up frequently, they asked to remove it and make it automatic actually!

@Danwood
You could use NW.JS action "Show folder dialog"
You could also try to make a system which deletes snapshots ignored by player when player quit your game in order to prevents a high data storage

ALready done, old snapshots are deleted if player discards the game and starts a new one. So if i use Show Folder dialog, can i save the selected path to a variable and use it to point all the future snapshots, in order to avoid prompting the dialog every time?
