    Cloud Sync reverted my save to older one


    I had played Forza Horizon 3 on my Xbox Series X. I continued to play it on my Windows 10 PC for a couple of weeks by using cloud saves. Then after a couple of weeks playing on PC, I wanted to play again on Series X. The game had Quick Resume on so it continued from a weeks old save From the last time I played on console. It automatically synced to the cloud. I thought it would sync me to the most recent save from the PC version but it apparently overwrote my newest cloud save from PC wit the old save from console. I quit my game and deleted my local console save but it still downloaded the old save from cloud.

    Is there a way to retrieve the PC save from the cloud? It’s pretty bad oversight if quick resume makes it possible to lose weeks worth of saves.

    :)

    Is it possible to revert a cloud save made for a game?

    Hello Brussell,

    Thank you for posting here on the Xbox forums. We understand that you would like to revert, or have Microsoft revert a cloud save to an older save file. Unfortunately that is not possible. Once a cloud save file is overwritten, nothing can be done to get
    it back. The screen where you select which save file to go with is the last chance to keep that file before it is overwritten.

    Not if it has been overwritten or deleted. The saves are typically stored on the console and in the cloud. If it hasn't been overwritten in both places you may be able to sync it from the older save.

    Hey there,

    Were you playing offline for most of the time before you had internet installed? If so, syncing from the cloud after connecting to the internet may have replaced your save with an earlier save when your Xbox One console might have been connected before.
    Unfortunately in this scenario there isn't a way to replace the newly synced cloud save with an older local only save.

    Hope this helps clear it up, and sincere apologies for any frustration this may cause.

    Can someone at Microsoft Access specific saves on the cloud?

    Unfortunately, no one can bring back a specific save, as they don't keep a history of your previous save games.

    However, if the console hasn't synced this corrupted save, try the following:

    Go to the game tile, and press the Menu button.

    Choose to manage the game.

    Delete the local savegame from your console, and start the game. The console should try to sync the save from the cloud.

    If that was successful, and you have an older savestate that works, congratulations.

    If that didn't work, and the cloud save is corrupted as well, you will unfortunately have to start over, by deleting the local save as well as from the cloud, by choosing both buttons in the game management screen.

    I lost my FORZA HORIZON 2 game save(XBOX ONE)

    Just to make sue I understand...Are you connected online?

    The Xbox One will automatically sync your saves to the cloud unless you're not online...with the latest save.

    Per the link below or in your own words....what happened to the save?

    support.xbox.com/.../manage-cloud-saves

    -Error: “We couldn’t sync your info with the cloud.”

    -Error: “Your other Xbox is taking a long time to sync to the cloud.”

    -Message: “Which one do you want to use?”

    -Error: ”We can’t save additional info for…”
