Losing all my households

★★★★★ Newbie

So I logged onto my sims 4 games today and I was going to play with one of my households I’ve been growing for over a year and not only was it gone but all of my other ones too! I don’t know how to get them back and I’m so sad

HI @DanielaBalas 

 

are you using oneDrive ? That's the most common cause for your issue. The game doesn't use the local folder anymore but oneDrive.

 

Make sure your save games are still in your local folder and check if you also have a folder in oneDrive. If so, just copy the local ones to one Drive or turn one drive off

 

Here's a few other tips on the issue: https://sims4.crinrict.com/eng/2014/09/save-games-disappearing/
