    Has this happened to anyone and is there a way to recover the save?

    nasty surprise when I clicked on restore saved game...
    Is there a save file with a long name with the word Temporary in it?
    If so that might be it. You can just open in then.

    If not, are you running the game as administrator? Otherwise the save file might end up in a different place.

    yes, runnng as admin and always do.

    There was a huge bunch of files I noticed in the main folder the last time I played with tmp or temp in the names, but all of them have disappeared,

    nothing in the compatibility files either.

    Hm... problem cannot be solved then. I can always find my somewhat older save file in the cloud (automatically backed-up).

    Yes. Alas. Gone.

    Was just primed and ready for action.

    Has made the team full of juggernauts.
    Just bought in a few as well to complete the final peices but won't be able to play.

    Very bizarre.

    I think I'm done with the game.
    No point making saves that disappear on you all of s sudden.

    Nothing in recycle bin?

    Done a search on your PC for the save game name?

    I don't know too much about it but sometimes there is a "hidden folder" as well - maybe it is in there? (if you search on forum you may find something on that or someone else can point you in right direction)

    maybe your antivirus scanned it and thought it was a virus?? try in your quarantined folder

    It should not happen. It has never happened to me yet, but I do backup my save files just in case.

    No... It just disappeared for whatever reason...

    Still, I decided to start a new game but used the editor to assemble my squad from the lost save and holidayed forward... A few years. Not quite the same thing but as close to it, using the cm explorer tool to make a few adjustments as well.

    In the old days (before I had automatic backups to the cloud) I always saved the file under a new name, so you'd get multiple save games, like numbered or something). If you then somehow lose the latest save file or it gets corrupted you can always load a slightly older version.

    Hehe... Yes, I actually did that, but they were all lost together as they were in the same folder.

    Hi, guys.

    Is there any way to recover a corrupted save? I mean I think it's corrupted since CM closes when database is being loaded.

    Assume you are running as administrator?

    try saving elsewhere and loading from that path?

    Hi, I have a save on Version 3.9.68, have had the game running for years on the same laptop with no issues. Then suddenly last night none of my saves (have about 5) would load. When I clicked restore it said "[C:\Program Files (x86)\Championship Manager 01-02\ [save name] does not exist". And the same for the others.

    I figured out if I restart my laptop and then load CM up all the saved games suddenly exist again and I'm able to resume playing on them. Yet if I do this and then minimise the game and go to my Program Files (x86)/ Championship Manager 01-02 folder on the laptop the saved games are nowhere to be found - even though I am in one at the time (it's just minimised).

    Any ideas?

    I can't even copy the file because it's not showing in the folder it's supposed to even though I'm on it at the time.
    I've looked through a few things on forums but cannot figure out a solution for the life of me e.g. saw something about Compatibility Files but apparently Windows 10 doesn't have this option? I don't really want to be restarting my laptop before each time I have a go on CM.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Champ Man reset and saved games crashing

    Hi guys, I seem to be finding some weird errors at the moment. When I attempted to load CM 01/02 icon from desktop, I got an error message (stupidly forgot the take down) but essentially what it's done is restore factory settings i.e. when it eventually loaded back up again, I was greeted with the Game Settings screen. I was able to load up a .sav game but when I tried to click onto the next date, the game completely crashed. Think my PC is knackered but any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Is there a way to save my .sav game?
    Do I need to reinstall everything and start again?
    Many thanks
    Martin

    Thanks very much for the response. Unfortunately I already had the game setup as XP SP3 and I've just ran as Administrator but no difference.

    Is this more preventative to stop it happening again or is there any way to retrieve my previous game?

    Is your recommendation that I uninstall or should it be ok going forward so long as I run via admin?

    Many thanks
