    Skyrim cloud games synced - but not my most recent saves (lost 2 months of gameplay!)


    Hi all,

    My Skyrim cloud saves will not fully download to the console.

    I was playing it 3 days ago and then one morning is said it was synching with the cloud. When the game loaded I find I have lost 2 months of gameplay and hundreds of saves. I play this via Game Pass, so obviously I am connected to Live when I play (my console is always online) so this isn't an issue with playing offline or on someone else's console that might cause sync issues)

    I have since deleted the local saves (recommended, as it should force all my saves to be downloaded from the cloud) and restarted the console by holding down the power button and disconnecting from the power.

    As expected the game then tries to sync with the cloud - it gets to 81% every time and then the sync screen just goes away as if it was all done - and I still don't have my missing saves. It's as though there's a storage limit on the xbox (my HDD is 45% full so I'm talking about an arbitrary limit on the size/number of Skyrim saves?). The only thing I haven't yet tried is either removing my account from the console and/or doing a factory reset on the console.

    If anyone from Microsoft is reading - is there a way you can please see if my missing cloud saves are there (I had over 1000 save points - the most recent one I have now is 860). If it is a space management issue that is stopping the remaining saves from being downloaded, perhaps you could remove cloud saves 1-700 so that my other saves can be downloaded?

    thanks

    Chris

    :)

    Skyrim cloud games synced - but not my most recent saves (lost 2 months of gameplay!)

    Hello, ChrisDuffill. Thanks for reaching out. I'm Lucas, an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user just like you. I'll be glad to help you out.

    To retrieve a lost save from the cloud, try to delete the all the game saved data for it to sync again.

    - Go to My Games & Apps.
    - Highlight Skyrim.
    - Press the Menu button and select Manage Game and Add-ons.
    - Go to Saved Data and Clear Local Saves.

    After that, do a Power Reset on the console, don't wait for the sync:
    - Turn off Xbox and unplug all cables from it.
    - Wait 2 minutes, plug them in again and turn your console on.

    After that, press the Xbox button on your controller, and select Settings.
    Navigate to Devices & connections > Blu-ray.
    Select Persistent Storage.
    Select Clear Persistent Storage.

    - Then Press the Xbox Button, go to My Games and Apps, select Skyrim, Manage Game & Addons, 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, you'll need to factory reset your console. If the factory reset doesn't work too, I'm afraid your saves got corrupted on the cloud :(

    forza horizon 2 game save issue on cloud

    Chances are you've lost your original save.

    For some reason the Forza games can have an issue syncing your saves on the cloud servers.It is rare but it does happen.

    It'll get to 99% & fail to sync.

    When you try again it will give you the option of 2 saves,if you pick the newer save it will over write your old save & start you from the beginning.

    Had this myself on Forza 5 & lost 200 hours of gameplay etc.

    Forza Horizon 2 Lost save

    Your save is gone i'm afraid.

    For some reason Forza 5/Horizon 2 sometimes have an issue syncing with the cloud server,will get to 99% & fail.

    If you had tried to sync it again it would of synced properly or given you the option to use an older save.

    I feel your pain,i lost a save with about 150 hours worth of gameplay on Forza 5

    Minecraft Save Data Problem

    Hi SwitchinXbox,

    Thanks for coming to the forums again. It seems that your last save from the cloud was not your most recent save that you had saved locally. If this happens, it's usually due to the local save not being properly synced with Xbox Live servers and a soft factory
    reset will clear local cache so your games will re-sync the last save you had from the cloud to your local drive.

    Syncing your local saved data to the cloud is done whenever you properly quit the game or restart your Xbox which closes all open games. Keeping a game on standby and then factory resetting the Xbox will not overwrite the data properly to the cloud and it
    won't have the most recent save you had saved locally. Also, you cannot go into your cloud and get a save from an earlier date because the data is constantly overwritten when the game is closed and the data syncs to have the data up to date using an automatic
    process.
