I restarted my computer after playing DAI for a few hours, and when I got back on, 4 of my character saves were completely gone. Before I launched DAI, it asked me if I wanted to use cloud or local storage, and I ALWAYS use local, so that's what I did this time, but I checked my save folder and turns out I indeed lost 2 months worth of local saves. What do I do?
Was there an error or something that made you have to restart?
Not sure if you can recover local-only saves, all I can suggest is in future, back them up yourself on a regular basis. If you'd been using cloud saves, they'd probably still be there (as it stores your saves both on the cloud and locally)... Sorry I can't be more help, that's a new one.
Also, you can disable cloud saving so it stops asking you if you want to use it (well, I assume it does), just uncheck the 'enable cloud saving for all games' check box in the cloud storage tab in your game information in Origin.
If a post solves your issue, please mark it as solved, it may help others with the same issue in future.
