I NEED HELP WITH A SAVE!!!
I had just saved, and was about to quit, and my PC crashed, and restarted. I thought "Thats ok, i just saved, and i was going to stop anyways." Well, next time i open it up, the # that is usually before the save, like 38, or 67, was 4768. I was scared, and then i tried to load it, and it says that the save is version 0 and my game is version 9. I tried the thing where i watched the opening scene, and the first chance i got, i tried to load it, and it didn't work. is there any way i can fix this, or am i just going to have to start anew?
Thanks for any help i recieve!

probably your last safe file has been corrupted due to the crash. Try another safe file, if that doesn't work, start over again

AAHHH i dont have another save file, i turned off autosave and stuff. is there a way to restore the file?

Just load your backup. You do have a backup? If not, I am guessing next time you will. If you are using NMO it will show you the list and names of any backups/saves. Also, you can manually examine your directory for .bak files.
The crash indicates (it did re-boot) you might have a more serious problem than just a borked save.

yeah, i ran out of cpu space. i was downloading bf3 at the same time, and it used like 98 percent full.

Even 100% CPU usage should not crash your computer.... much different that just a CTD. I mean, we stress test CPU's all the time (to heat them up) and a crash like that would be a fail. But, for you without a known good beefy PS and GPU I would be looking at some serious heat problems in either or all your main components, including ram.

Why do so many people only keep one save?

/facepalm!

And the 1 is usually an auto-save or Cloud... Yikes.

i looked at my saves file, and found a save that was made at the same time with the same name, but it had the .ess.bak tag, and i renamed it and took off the .bak tag, and it worked!!
