I am BEYOND pissed off.
PSA READ CAREFULLY if steam asks you about saves when launching. Lost a ton of progress for no ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ reason.

Popup had more than 3 words and therefore people don't read them. It's sad, really, but you should be pissed off at yourself. How does one go about it like this:

>game crashes
>big popup about my saves
>dont care not important blablabla
>2 options, NEWEST and OLDEST
>click on OLDEST
>cry on the forums

Hey, it really sucks and hopefully you learned from this that choosing the newest save, the one with the timestamp closest to your current time, was the right choice.

The game shouldn't ask you at all and just load the most recent one.
Of course it's Steams/FromSoftwares fault.

Mine gave me the 2 options and the cloud option said it was saved at 2:49 PM, but I knew that I was playing at 7 PM so I chose the local data option. Didn't lose any progress.

Just know this, files already ON your device are always the most recent ones.
This makes sense.
turn off cloud saves... the hell is wrong with you :btd6darkknight:

More like:

Close game normally

Start game back up

Oh look a pop up about saves that I've seen dozens of times across other games, I'm going to click what I always do, which is download locally, which has never failed me and I don't really read through it cus I'm in a rush to get back to Elden Ring

Lose five hours, or in other peoples cases 8+ hours of progress.
First souls game to use cloud saves lol.

So you had the same thing happening before and you just NEVER read it ever and now that you did not read it after a dozen of times.. it finally bit you in the ass?

And you are still upset that it happened now? Cool

<3. Man you are my favourite person today. Thank you.
You're my least favorite today, get some help.

Also another suggestion, you can create a batch file on the desktop which does backing up your EldenRing saves automatically for you with a timestamp.

- Right Click on desktop -> New Text Document
- Copy paste the following into the text file
cd %APPDATA%\ xcopy EldenRing "C:\ER backup\EldenRing\" /e /y cd C:\"ER backup" ren EldenRing "EldenRing %date%_%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%"
- Save file
- Rename text file to a batch file, example: ER_Savebackup.bat

Double click on the file to create a save backup.
(give a minute of gap at least between making the backups)
It will copy the EldenRing save data files to C:\ER backup\ and add a date stamp (just FYI its not in YYYYMMDD format)

Backups will be with folders like (when you run the batch file)
EldenRing 03-03-2022_0800
EldenRing 03-03-2022_0930
EldenRing 03-03-2022_1000

----- ----- ----- ----- -----
Edit
For the folders to be named with YYYYMMDD format as a datestamp, you may need to find at which position your day and month are displayed on your windows system.

Example on my Windows date format, which has DD-MM-YYYY, following is my batch file.
cd %APPDATA%\ xcopy EldenRing "C:\ER backup\EldenRing\" /e /y cd C:\"ER backup" ren EldenRing "EldenRing %date:~6,4%%date:~3,2%%date:~0,2%_%time:~0,2%%time:~3,2%"

Backups will be with folders like (when you run the batch file)
EldenRing 20220303_0800
EldenRing 20220303_0930
EldenRing 20220303_1000

Thank you for this.

Hope it helps, I just wrote that batch file up. I myself didn't have it until few minutes ago. HA! Thanks for the situation you faced, I guess.
