How to keep your savegames safe.

Post by Aɾყα on Tue 20 Mar 2012, 09:06

Hello,

Here's a small piece of advice to keep you from loosing much progress if your save game becomes corrupted at some point.

-Copy your saves folder to another location periodically. Depending on how often you play, do this every week/2weeks/month.
-Always keep 2 copies of your save game. Say that you're playing your town and at some point decide to save. Instead of mindlessly hitting the Save button, choose Save as every time. Save your town to sunsetvalley1 today, and sunsetvalley2 tomorrow alternating between your save games. That way you never loose much progress if one of your saves becomes corrupted.

And always always back up your saves before you change anything about your game, so never start installing a patch, expansion or mod without backing up your save games first!

I follow the instructions to copying the save files once in 4 days, though I never lost my game progress.
