Exclamation Corrupt saves. Careful!

Just lost my 89 challenges, 17 play styles, and all the collectibles I had.

It kept my contracts data, which I couldn't care less about.

I downloaded a title update, and am left with this.

Others have had this issue:

Never update a game when you are connected to your profile, I got the same thing, long ago, with Gears of War 3.

Specially with the games that save statistics.

When an update is offered, especially with a game that got a lot of save problems like Hitman Absolution, refuse it, quit the game, backup your save, disconnect from your profile and update the game with the guest account (or another one).

I updated yesterday, but my save corrupted today when my Xbox froze after completing a mission, so it's not just the update process.

This is still happening? This was supposed to be addressed in a previous update.

FYI, this has a higher chance of happening when connected to Live. Unless you're playing Contracts, play offline.

Yep, I could fiberwire myself. Almost completely done with mission 6 and the cut scene froze and lost all data except 47% unlocks. I'm kicking my ass for not saving it in 2 places. I will start from scratch offline and duplicate a save every night or after every mission complete. The only other time this has happened was Dead Island.

I too had this happen to me today. Only a couple of levels from getting cheevs for hard, evidence and 100 challenges, froze after restarting a checkpoint and after restarting it told me it was corrupted.
People saying to backup their saves but tbh this kind of s--- shouldn't be happening.

Suicidal doesn't even come close...

same here.((( I was on mission in dexter industries laboratory with lots of challenges complete. Probably will end this game on youtube. It's a shame that such serious bus is still not fixed 3 months after release.

Happened to me a while back when I was on the last area of mission 14 where you have to kill the Saints. Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this from happening again or are we all just screwed?

Squeenix and Gearbox, in particular, seem to have a problem with reliable save systems.

The only real remedy is to have a back-up save file on a flash drive that isn't connected to your XBOX. :/

Snap! Fucking seriously pissed the fuck off, 85 challenges, hard done all the way through (so far), so now im doing a speed run, murdering people left right and centre. It makes it much more fun.

This happened to my youngest brother, he was livid. It happened to me too, but I wasn't that far into it, so I just quit lol if I ever go back to it, I'll save on my HDD and my USB thingy. Still an annoying occurrence though -.-

Why are they still charging $$ for this game??

I felt that I had got a real bargain when MS offered this for 9.99 during their blowout sale 2 weeks ago. I understand that that games will have glitches from time to time, but like this???????????????????? They cannot be selling a game that is SOOOOOOOOOO broken that it deletes ALL of your save data!!! Fix it or give it out @ N/C until it is playable. WTF????????????? ugh

Again! Didn't freeze last night just knocked it off, started it up all lost.

I can't backup onto cloud as no Internet I'm in a hotel.

Im done with this shit game and anything by this developer now, I need to play a new game, what a waste of £25!

This game has replay value for the challenges.and different kill methods, yeah right can't finish the game to do a second run!!

Yep, same here. I'm thinking I got such a great price...but then this crap happens. The first corrupt save happened I think around mission 2 (the game froze, when I went to play again, told me it was corrupt). At the time, it was no big deal since I was so early in. But now I'm over (or was...) halfway, and have been inching my way playing through on Hard. Then it happens: another freeze. I'd already forgotten about the first time. I simply can NOT believe this crap. I'm deleting off my harddrive...what a freaking pile.

This shit just happened to me as well, not happy as I was 4 challeneges away from the 1000G! I also went to replay mission 2, the game froze so I turned my Xbox off, boot the game back on and everything reset except my earnings in Contracts and Absolution campaign.

Fuck sake.

I ended up starting it again and saved to the cloud after each mission to make sure I did not get the corrupt file error again - earned the 1000G and now am not quite as mad as before. They still need to fix this, however.

Fat chance.

This was one of the games Sqeenix over-extended themselves on and it didn't live up to their unrealistic expectations sales-wise, so I doubt they'll ever fix it, honestly.

Too bad, it's a decent little game.

Thank fuck they didn't tack multiplayer onto it...

Dude, your file corrupted once and you didn't taugh about making a back-up the second time? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on you...

Anyway, i checked this thread cause from what it looks like its gonna be on GwG this month.... ill make sure to make 3 back up, one on the HDD, one on a memory stick usb, and one on the cloud ... just in case...

Angry Froze during auto-save

Just finished the laboratories level when the game froze during auto-saving corrupting the save and losing all my progress.

Have a backup save!
