View Full Version : How to recover save file ?

02-05-2013, 01:24 PM
Well, I made quite some damage to my save file by deleting and moving and crap like that, so I reinstalled the game and the Uplay cloud only picks up the newest save file. It doesn't synchronize the older save file which I need.

Is there a way to access this file via uPlay cloud or is it forever gone ?

Thanks for any help

IF you have the old saves intact, then you can recover them by doing the following steps, otherwise, there is no way to recover old saves as the cloud only stores the latest save you have.

1. Backup the save from the cloud.
2. Disable cloud sync in uplay.
3. exit uplay and copy your saves (the ones you want to have).
4. start the game and start playing until you see the save icon.
5. Exit game , now you can enable cloud sync after that BUT NOTE, the one you have locally will overwrite the one on the cloud. so if you want it back, do the same steps but copy the file you backed it up in step 1.

Saves Cloud Sync works by comparing saves dates, if the date of the save you have locally is greater than the one on the cloud, it will be taken, otherwise, the cloud one will replace your local save.
