How to Restore Save Data Loss in Hogwarts Legacy on PC/PS5/XBox

My Hogwarts Legacy save data is lost. I tried many different things, such as a complete reinstall and deleting some other reserves in the savegames folder in 'AppData' as the saves were still being written in the savegames folder but not being read by the game, but this still didn't work. After the latest patch, I lost a lot of my save data, I could no longer save the game manually, and autosave was not working.
