How to Recover My Disappeared Hogwarts Legacy Save Data

I played for a total of 13 hours, but when I went back, the same thing happened. I tried doing it again, but this time it just saved my previous saves and not my 6 hours. The game doesn't recognize the saves I have in local files. Has anyone else experienced the issue where their saved game vanished and a new game began without them having to do anything?

You don't have to worry about losing some or all game savings and data, and the following solution can help you recover lost Hogwarts Legacy data.

Step 1. Select where you have lost the game data: C:/Users/Your Username/AppData/Local/Hogwarts Legacy/Saved/SaveGames and click "Scan".

Step 2. When the scan process finishes, all the lost and deleted data on the selected drive will appear. You can try to locate the lost data from the view panel on the left.

Step 3. Double-click a file and preview. After that, select the data you want to restore at one time and click "Recover".

You can try another method verified effective on the Hogwarts Legacy forums:

Save your game data from the Steam Cloud - Create a new character and leave after receiving a potion - Add previous saves to a folder - Rename all other saved files and click - Duplicate the last saving so that you have two of them - Renames to HL-00-10.sav and HL-00-11.sav - Then load up your character to access your previous save.

To be more concrete:

  • Locate and open this folder - "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Hogwarts Legacy\Saved\SaveGames\RANDOM NUMBER\."
  • Copy the entire folder as a backup and save it on your desktop if possible.
  • Delete all but the oldest saved file from the original folder (it will be something like "HL-00-00.sav").
  • Launch a new save and game and play untill the initial autosave point (where you receive a healing potion).
  • Copy the name of the most recent save file the game made before quitting.
  • Change the name of your original save file, which was previously named "HL-00-00.sav," to the name of the most recent save file.
  • The new save file will be replaced.
  • Restarting the game should bring up your previous save and your progress.
