Resident Evil 7 collectibles guide: All file locations

One of Resident Evil 7‘s Achievements/Trophies, “The Devil is in the Details”, is awarded when you read all files in one playthrough. To help, we thought we’d collate them all for you here.

How to use this guide

This guide will be split up into “point of no return” sections, meaning you should collect all items on a page before continuing on in Resident Evil 7‘s story. Each page will be marked by a spoiler, though as small of one as we can muster, telling you the action that will stop you from collecting items. The files themselves are then split up into sections of the map. They are not necessarily chronological.
