Hello,

Go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves.

Look for a folder with the name "(Name of your savegame).sims3". Now move that folder onto the desktop. Then look if there is a folder
"(Name of your savegame).sims 3.backup".

Remove the ".backup" ending in the folder's name - and then start the game. See if your old save was restored.

If there is really nothing in the "Saves" folder, then I'm afraid I can't help you further with that. Crying or Very sad

For the future, you could regularly make backup copies of your "Saves"-folder, to a safe place like an external hard-drive.
