I don't know what causes this bug but It happened thrice now but in different days. Was just playing normally then came back the next day and Poof my saves are gone, settings got reset and lost all my stuff on the gallery. I decided to move on and just start a new world but day passes by it happened again. I lost all will to play the game at this point and tried to find if anyone was having the same issue. Or if anyone has a fix for the problem but haven't found anything yet.


Looked at the Documents > Electronic arts > Sims 4 folder and saves are long gone.

@deyveed14  Do you have OneDrive set up to sync the contents of Documents?  That's the most common reason the Sims 3 user folder would disappear: OneDrive can remove the local copy of the folder when your hard drive is full enough.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
