Re: save files gone - Xbox one

@HeavFord17 This issue happens sometimes when updating your XBox One. If you have saves synced to the cloud then you should be able to get them back.

All I did was restarted the console as the audio sounded a bit funny. Now my file's gone. Syncing didn't help. Wait! Never mind! I found it. I signed out then back in. I also have to manually reset my options to my liking as well.

One of my save files is missing (the one I use most often as well). I have all my sims saved to my library anyway but it’s gonna be lots of hassle trying to redo all the relationships and stuff. I played this household yesterday and it was fine so I don’t know why it’s suddenly gone.

@frostingsims Did signing out of your profile and back in restore your save?

Re: save files gone - Xbox one

@frostingsims If you are signed in to the correct profile, and signing in and out didn't help, can you download the save from the cloud?

I see reports off and on about saves being lost, and I think they get corrupted and the console can't read them. It's good that you have backed all your sims up in your library. I do the same, just in case.

It is a bummer about the relationships, especially in a big family. There's a lot of moving sims around to get the relationships fixed in a new game.

Where can I find the cloud?

@frostingsims The FAQ for XBox Cloud saves is here. Xbox One cloud game saves FAQ

 

As far as I understand, anything different in the cloud than what is on your console should prompt you when you load the game to play a save.
