Sims 4 Update wiped ALL my households

★★★ Newbie

I'm sure I'm not the first one to have this experience but I can't find something exactly like this and it's late and I'm aggravated so I'm sorry if there's a thread on this somewhere.

 

I went to play Sims 4 and it had to update before it would begin. After the update ALL my previous data is gone. YEARS of data. I have gone through so many updates and this has never happened before. But I went into the folder and all the files are gone, it's not simply that the files aren't playing or won't load. Why would this have happened?! Is there any way for me to recover these files?

 

In a pinch I could copy the save files from my old computer but that would still be like a years worth of playing that's gone. Has anyone dealt with this?

1. There is an option that if you use Onedrive your computer arbitrarily moved you game folder there

2. Check if there is a second folder in the Documents> Electronic Arts folder with the name The Sims 4 _LE

Thanks! I did in fact find an aribtrary second EA folder hidden. And with this I breathe a sigh of relief.
