Best Regards...

You have tried everything in the very good link that Phoebe posted ? That's quite a bit of information, but OK. The only realistic things left then are either upgrading to a 64-bit system (I assume you have 32-bit ?) or trying to shorten the playing sessions and then exiting the game to "relieve the RAM"; then you can re-start the game.


What is not written in the article is this, though: even if you install your Sims 3 base game and the expansions on another drive, then your "The Sims 3" folder - containing all your custom content, mods, and SAVEFILES - will still be in your main-drive (in Windows that's usually "C").

This means you always have to make sure to have enough space on your main-drive for your custom content, mods and savefiles. As a very rough guideline: for your savefiles I recommend at least 1.5 to 2 GB, if you plan to install all the store stuff, then add another 5 GB. In order for the main-drive to work without problems, you should add again another 2 to 3 GB. So, all in all this makes around 9 GB. But again, this is just a rough estimate.

I don't know what happened to your "vanished" savefile. Maybe there wasn't enough space anymore on "C" for the game to actually write the savefile.
