Recently all my saved games have been lost. Every Steam game and boxed game. Everything has been reset just like a fresh install. How could this have happened?

Just the save files? The games are still there?

Most game saves and whatnot are in your My Documents folder or a subfolder within there. Did your game settings get reset as well, or are the save files the only thing missing?

Games are still there. The games did get reset, all graphics, user profiles ect.

Is it possible your system rolled back to a really old restore point somehow? Are you using the same account on the PC as before?

I have system restore off. Yes, I am using the same account.

Ok got them all back. I just restored my user files from my backup. Never had to do that before. Wonder what happened. Thanks for your help.

We need more games with Steam Cloud support.

I agree. Also if MS want to stop us backing up and swapping saves they should at least offer online storage too.
