Retrieve the hidden backup file
What's happening ?
Sometimes, It can happen that a savefile gets corrupted.
If the computer crash while saving, or the power goes down at a bad moment, a save file can get corrupted and completly lost.

To avoid the loss of all your save file, there is a second, hidden backup file on your system.

How to use the backup file
  • Do not launch another game or load another save file
  • Go in this directory : "C:\Users\{YOUR-NAME}\AppData\LocalLow\MijuGames\Planet Crafter\"
  • Find the file Backup.json
  • Copy and paste it in the same folder
  • Rename it (example : "Survival-Restore.json")

After that, relaunch the game, and you should see the save file in the list.


More informations

After you have checked the new save file is working, you can remove the old corrupted save file from the save folder.

This Backup file is created every 15 minutes when you play the game.

It should work if you copy/ paste the specific file named "Backup.json" It won't work if you copy/ paste the corrupted save file. Don't have your game running while you do this.

Just tried this and it didn't work. File is still corrupted after 125 hours of play.

My save file corrupted just randomly and I followed the steps and did it all but the new file is still corrupted as well. Are there any cheats or any way to get back to where I was quickly because I really like the game but I'd rather not play again than have to completely restart.

My file corrupted sometime when the game was still open and the backup saved with the corrupted file, both files are now just completely blank.

Hi, I could not find the folder you recommend (game downloaded via Steam, windows 10). I used steam to move the game to an external hard-drive and could not find the recover file here either. Any help?

Thanks so much! I had 30+ MTI on my corrupted save file so this helped so much. this is reward worthy!
