    Lost save data through sync issue?


    I recently tried helping my wife's mom with setting up their Xbox and they accidentally used my account to set up a new character for them on Diablo 3, they didn't notice because it didn't pull down from the cloud for some reason so there were no characters. Well, when we closed and tried something to make sure everything was working properly for them, we reopened the game, and allowed it to synch off their local (because I was not there when they created the character, so I thought they just made a new character with the list), but realized it would probably only have the one level 1 character. Lo-and-behold it did. I figured it should be fine because when I next open my Xbox at home (just now) it should check to see what save data to use right, Local or cloud? Well, it automatically chose cloud without even letting me choose, and now I'm afraid I've lost hundreds of hours of progress.

    Is there any way to have the data recovered or reverted on the server side or local side so I don't lose all my progress?

    :)

    Lost save data through sync issue?

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    To retrieve a lost save from the cloud, Go to My games & apps.

    - Highlight the game.

    - Press the Menu button and select Manage game and add-ons.

    - Go to saved Data and clear local saves.

    - Then, Select the game tile, and then choose Select all to make sure all available content gets installed.

    - Select Save changes and wait for the content to install.

    - Relaunch the game.

    If that doesn't work, then I'm afraid the data has been lost on the cloud as well.

    Xbox Live Cloud Save

    You missed the point entirely.

    Xbox Life Cloud Save continued syncing with my local Xbox One hard drive every time I started the game. The complete safe was never lost, otherwise the sync would have restored it.

    When part of my information disappeared, the sync still happened, but treated the new version -- with the missing data -- as official, and overwrite the other save (that was not missing anything) with the one that was.

    Cloud save worked to back up my save, but could not recognize that my save had mysteriously lost some data.

    Sadly you need to redownload every game again but the saved data is in the cloud so your son shouldn't have lost any progress at all you only need to sync the save data again

    Lost offline Save data

    Hello Daniel,

    Thank you for posting on Xbox Forums. In regards to the issue with the missing saved data, if you were not online when you were playing the game and you no longer have any saved data that data is now lost. In order to prevent Saved data from being lost
    you will have to sync it with the Cloud game saves by going online every once and a while.

    It is unfortunate but you will not be able to recover the saved data unless it was previously synced with the cloud. For more info on

    Cloud Saved Data FAQ
    .

    If you have any other questions please feel free to reply back letting us know. Thank you again for posting on Xbox Forums.
