Stray Lost Progress: Items and Progress Missing

"I just finished Slums 2. Found all of the music sheets and memories in the slums, got the tracker working, etc. I realized I missed some memories in the rooftop section, so I went back and did that via chapter select. After I finished that, I continued my game only to find all my inventory items gone and the progress I made lost. No tracker, memories missing, music sheets reset, etc. Does this happen to anyone else?" - from Reddit
