Lost all my data
No changes on my PC or anything. No mods no nothing. 150 hours lost.
Is there any way to force backupload from steamcloud ?

If you've already overwritten your old save with a new blank one, then you're out of luck. Be sure to back up your saves in future.
I had the same issue and did have back ups and none of them work.
My friend who played the same time I did also has unreadable data. Neither of us used mods. I think at some point the save files changed and old unupdated saves don't work with iceborne. Thats my best guess.

Still downloading here but hopefully my 1400h save is safe. Feeling a bit worried now, lol.
This was an issue during console release as well. It's pretty ♥♥♥♥ed up that they didn't fix it or AT LEAST warn people to back up their data before the update dropped.

If you use that link above you can prob still grab a copy from the last time you played. Just in case.

Yeah I guess I should download from the cloud just in case, I have a big save backup archive on my Google Drive but like that person said none of his manual backups are working which got me worried :<

Well fingers crossed.

I just played and my save file was fine, but i also make a backup in case something happens

Then I'm doomed, since the game asked me "do you want to create data for ICEBORNE" i fell for it.
Also I appreciate people trying to help but what's the point of having cloud saves if you have to backup, that's dumb. Guess i'm not playing this game then.

Also I found my old savec on my comp. The game just doeasn't want to know anything about them.

God im also scared now. I have 1300+ hours and a backup, but if the backup serves for nothing, then we are at the lady`s luck mercy.

Lost my save.. RIP...
Saw the link shared too late..
There is a new folder called savedata_backup in the game's root folder that seems to have the original save before you launched expansion.

That said if the game cannot upgrade your save then yeah might be hard to solve that issue.
