Sims 4 Saved Games Not Showing Up

★★ Novice

I accidentally uninstalled my expansion packs and so lost all my saved games in those worlds, luckily I had the saves backed up so I reinstalled the packs and moved the saves back to the saves folder, but they’re not showing up in the game? The only saved families I still have are those in the base worlds >.< please help!!

I've never heard of .cleverfiles before but it seems to be related to an app called Disk Drill which can be used for data recovery.

You would need to look into how and what this app has done to your files.

How did you lose your saved games? Uninstalling Packs is completely separate. The Packs are installed in the same location as the Sims 4 app, your saves are in the Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 4 folder.

Can you go into Applications > Utilities and open Terminal. Copy and paste the following command then hit Enter/Return:

 

find / -type f -name "*.save*" 2>/dev/null

Give it a minute to return the results then please copy/paste them here.

No idea. Perhaps contact the developer?
