Savegames mysteriously disappear

Post by Alex Chap » 13 Jun 2020 13:38

Hello everyone,

I'm having a strange problem with savegames, in fact they sometimes totally disappear without any warnings. They don't finish in my trash bin and my Antivirus doesn't seem to be the responsible as there are no warnings and I have it since a good amount of time.
The first time it happened was with Sabatu's last level, I loaded the game and when I died, the 6-7 savegames were all gone, for my project it seems that the first 3 disappears randomly.

Do you know what could be the cause ? Does this already happened to you ?

I'm currently checking if I have a tricky virus, and I don't think the savegames have complex data that would make them disappear. :?

Try a software recovery tool

Recuva usually is the best one

I can't promise it will definitely work but it's worth a shot

Yeah ... I guess this tool you proposed Joe is great but I did several cleanings for my computer and I'm not sure the savegames will be recovered. :(

I think it's Norton that is the cause, as they seem to disappear when it detects a patched Tomb4, that's pretty annoying. Even if I choose the folders to not inspect, it still acts like it wants. :?
