I accidentally deleted my FM 12 save using the game (from "Load game", then selected the save and then instead of "Select" I clicked on "Delete"). Would someone help me to recover it?

Is it in the recycle bin?

If not then go to the folder on the computer where it's stored.

See if there's a Previous Version http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-sharepoint-services-help/restore-or-delete-a-previous-version-of-an-item-or-file-HA010148859.aspx

No, it's not in the RB nor in the folder with saves.

Google some file recovery tools. You might get lucky.

Most likely that saved game is done with, did you do multiple saves with that saved game ? if not why not ?

Always make a backup. Buy a usb stick and copy your save game after every session. It's a pain when you start and just a routine after a week. And it will save you, when you are desperate.

That's why I always save to my Dropbox.

try rebooting (recovery mode) your pc 1 day before the accident

That won't help.

Okay, I've given up - three different recovery programs found my saves from FM 08 but not this. I'll start new. Thank for your comments, guys!

i found games saves i accidentally deleted from the FM12 GUI using the software "recover my files"...however when i tried the files they jut couldn't load as they failed to do so very early in the process...i have been told on this forum that my saves didn't recover correctly and probably important data is missing! Sure, lesson learned the hard way but extremely annoying stuff especially if it happens at the best point of career!

I'm extremely upset because for some reason my Inter save got corrupted and now doesn't load:mad:....I was deeply into that save, one of my best saves in recent times on FM. Now I have to start a new save and the fun just isn't there anymore. I hate starting a new save after investing so much time on another save!

People really need to do 3x rolling saves, then keep an external USB backup save every session or season. Considering the amount of hours people put into FM, it's worth the effort.
