They or you formatted it?
They. my previous one's were Formatted. when i did NOT Ask them to.

"Them" as in Repair shop or something.

That repair Cost 100$. and It's a waste

Unless your saves were synced with the Steam cloud, then they are gone.

If these guys were fighting against a virus, and had even passing knowledge what they were doing, then they propably did several overwrites to your disk.

Sorry, but I believe there is nothing we can do to fix your saves.

And so this means....I have to start over for what i did for the past few Years?

Steam realy need's to add a Feature's where you can save your stuff...

I lost some of the Greatest mod in Skyrim Modding community...

And i don't remmember the name of those Mod's.

As said, they actually do have them for saves. Skyrim is one of those games that can sync with Steam and copy saves to cloud. I am playing with several characters, so I do not personally use it, though.

Still, if you lost all your mods and can't get them all back, your saves would have been busted anyway.

Start a new game, with smile on your face. I know that loosing a dear character is annoying, but sometimes restart can be even funnier than original game.
I know. but...I hate having to Remember my old Skyrim happy day's.

When ever i look at Skyrim picture's it reminds of my Old skyrim happy day's

It's disappointing, but I am sure you can make a character that's even more fun. Maybe go for a completely different playstyle, e.g. if your last was a jack of all trades, go for a super-specialised stealth/illusion/backstab assassin who laughs at people who ask for his/her help...

I'm with you Brandybuck, no one to blame but yourself OHIMS.

They do as pointed out above.

1. STEAM Cloud for backing up Save Games
2. STEAM Workshop for mods; which when subscribed, they will automatically download to your computer, even on new/fresh installs.


As for the computer technician, they should have told you that they would reformat your computer. However, for future reference, whenever you take in your computer to ANYONE expect them to format your harddrive.

If you have the DLC I have a mod that can help you with a new character build that has everything you need, spells, items, enchantments, etc. It even has a special potion you can use to increase your skills by 15 points for each potion you drink, so you can get to around the level you where before the hard drive problem.

If you do not have the DLC I have a potion mod for leveling you can use to at least get leveled up and not have to be at a low level again.

Pretty much you lost everything. It is prize to formatting without backup data.

Let's all try to be supportive, shall we? Repeating the obvious isn't going to help.
