My Saves Being Deleted in Hogwarts Legacy, How to Fix

I lost two saves in level 30 when my PC was shut down due to a blackout, and I'm curious as to why. I could copy the 'AppData' save files into a backup folder to ensure their safety, but I could not make the saves function properly. What should I do?

Most likely a steam cloud problem. It seems that happens in many games when the steam cloud replaces the most recent save with an earlier one. No matter what the reason is, trying out professional data recovery software will always help.

The most frequently recommended approach for recovering lost saves in Hogwarts Legacy is EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. With this tool, restoring the deleted data in your gaming progress is easy, whether or not you have a backup of the game.

Step 1. Determine where the game data was lost. Click "Scan" and navigate to C:/Users/Your Username/AppData/Local/Hogwarts Legacy/Saved/SaveGames.

Step 2. Any lost and deleted data on the chosen drive will be visible after the scanning procedure. You can try to find the misplaced data using the view panel on the left.

Step 3. Preview a file by double-clicking it. Then, choose the data you wish to recover and click "Recover."

Besides using recovery software, you can also find the deleted game files in the Steam Cloud folder. Imagine that you turn on the Steam Cloud feature for the Hogwarts Legacy game. The game data and process will then be instantly synced to the Steam Cloud service, allowing you to access the game on other devices while logged into the same Steam account. Steam Cloud will use the following local location by default to save cloud files. You can save the files in the area specified by your operating system.

  • For Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata
  • For Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/userdata
  • For Linux: ~/.local/share/Steam/userdata

You may easily retrieve the saves by using File Explorer on your computer and using the address to navigate to the local folder.

However, you should follow the approach above by adding: /(Your Steam ID)/(game ID) if you want to locate the Cloud saves the location of a particular game.

Here is where the Monster Hunter Rising file is located as an illustration: Your Steam ID can be found in C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Library/UserData/Your Steam ID/1446780

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
