Unable to Save, Unable to Load
Three days ago I've begun to lose my save files, and I've been unable to load some of the already existing ones. Just 20 minutes ago, I was on my newest toon -- reached level 8, had some ♥♥♥♥ done, all was going well... until suddenly, as I go to save, all previous saves began disappearing... and no new saves were added in their place. AutoSaves? Forget about it.
Yes, I HAVE backed up my save files, and yes, I have searched for them in their proper folder. What I see there are the last few saves of my very first toon... and one autosave from who-knows-what. Probably that same toon.
None of my newer stuff was in there. I searched high and low and still cannot find those saves. Needless to say, I think they're gone for good.
I had to get out of Skyrim and lost my newest toon, because I couldn't ♥♥♥♥ing save. Couldn't use F5, couldn't manually save, couldn't get the game to auto-save by fast-travel or entering/leaving a building.
I have two of the DLC's downloaded - Hearthfire and Dawnguard. Had Dragonborn too, but for some reason, ♥♥♥♥ing Steam claims I never bought it. Uh what? Thanks for eating up that $20, Steam.
I do also have some mods installed, but these mods I've had for a while, and never seemed to cause any problems before in the past. So I'm having a hard time believing they're the cause of the 'unable to save' issue I'm having.
What the hell is going on?
