  1. Local and cloud game files; I lost some data


    So, I was loading up Minecraft, and then it said there was two different files, one on my xbox, and one saved in the cloud.

    I accidentally pressed cloud, and now I am wondering whether I can retrieve my local game files because it has the worlds I play. The cloud save has nothing.

    :)

    Accidentally Deleted Progress in RDR2

    If you saved over a file and it sync to the cloud. You game progress is lost. You can try running the Xbox Offline and see if your able to load the game from the local file.

    If that doesnt work delete the local saved file like Parity said and maybe the cloud didnt catch or sync the saved game progress.

    Tomb Raider Definitive Edition goes to black screen when I try to continue a loaded save

    You CAN actually delete your save game data locally on your xbox and leave it in the cloud. Go to your games/apps section in dashboard and go to the game in question. There are options to delete the local save game data and save game data in the cloud. You
    can delete local data or delete local and cloud data.

    hello there ,

    you need to delete the data before you save new data.
    But every time I delete my old local save and open a new game offline, and then choose to use the new local save to overwrite the cloud save when I enter the online game, a lot of files will be automatically downloaded from the cloud, and an error will be
    reported in the game.

    Resident Evil 7 on Game Pass PC not allowing me to play due to not being able to create a save

    Thank you for this @StevenVersteeg!

    Deleting the file with the most recent date didn't worked for me. But I did some workaround.

    I don't know if everything is the same in all machine but in my machine, there are 3 folders inside the
    wgs folder. Those are:

    • 000901FE9E122F24_3137<remaining_28_hex_digits>
    • 000901FE9E122F24_E70C<remaining_28_hex_digits>
    • t

    Let us call these folders, "data folders".

    Create a folder in Desktop and name it "backup folder".

    These are the steps on how I fix my data:

    1. Copy the "data folders" into "backup folder". This will serve as the backup.
    2. Delete the "data folders".
    3. Start the game. Since we deleted the "data folders", it will sync from cloud. New folders with same names will be created.
    4. The game will notify that "No saved data exists" and will ask if you want to Create ave data. Select
      "Yes".
    5. Continue with game configuration and Start a New Game.
    6. Once the auto-save triggered, exit the game.
    7. Delete the contents in each folder of "data folders".
    8. Copy the folders from "backup folder" and paste it in
      wgs
      folder. Select "Replace the file in the destination" if the system asks.
    9. Start the game again.
    10. Upon syncing, it will detect that the cloud files are different from the local files and will ask you which one to use: the older (cloud files) or the newer (the local files). Choose the
      older (cloud files).
    11. The data is back.

    As a warning, though: some unlocked features, unlocked items, and stats might reset. In my case, I lost the option to play new Madhouse game. The stats for Mr. Everywhere also went back to 0/20. Luckily, I still have the
    Albert-01R and The Secrets of Defense.

    Why does my xbox stay on when I turn it off?

    Hey Shadow, Your console is just going into the low power state which allows a cool down and if you are using the cloud then it is updating your cloud saved data since all data that is to be stored on the cloud is locally stored on your xbox until you shut
    it down, in which it uploads the data/save game files to the cloud.. There is no need to worry about this..
