    Which one do you want to use? Locally saved vs. cloud saved game data?


    I received a "message when your console has newer or different locally saved data than what’s saved in the cloud, usually after you play offline". I was "given the choice of which saved data to use, the
    locally saved or the cloud saved version". I selected the "cloud saved version" thinking it was latest, only to realize it wasn't. Is there any way I can recover my local saved data, which is indeed my latest saved game data?

    :)

    I want to use locally saved over cloud saved games but it's just my preference

    If you choose the cloud save it is going to pull it down and overwrite the local save.

    most games will automatically load the most recent being the cloud unless you do many manual saves also like i do on final fantasy games out of habit more than anything or to make sure i have a backup save i can revert to if it auto saves at a point like
    me having really low health at the edge of battle. if it hasn't over written the local save i would go to the in game options, go to load game and see if the manual save is there. if it isn't then its either been erased if you have had to clear local saves
    for any reason usually to fix a previous problem or the cloud save has overwritten it.

    this is not something that happens often be sure to check the given save times before loading up if you are given a choice in future.

    best regards.

    I did check the site, and no one had any suggestions. Only one person said they cleared their local and cloud save and started a new game which got it to work. Problem is the game is a super grind and I've unlocked a ton of stuff which I don't want to do
    again.

    I'm trying to see if there is a way to backup my save. clear the local and cloud save, get the achievement and then reload my save. I have 2 Xboxs, would it be possible to install the game on my second Xbox, clear the local and cloud save, get the achievement,
    clear local and cloud save again, then fire up my main Xbox with my game save on it?

    it's more common than the data in the cloud is the latest, but maybe to recover your data you need to start the game again and choose the data saved locally
