I recently went to continue an old game of Mass Effect 2 and was disappointed to find that all of my save files were missing.
That's Ok, I thought, I hadn't got that far in, I'll just restart the game with one of my Mass Effect 1 save files. That's when I found that they were missing too!
That's Ok, I thought, I'll recover them from backups. That's when I found that the directories where the Mass effect save files are now (
C:\Users\...\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2), were created when I recently opened the game, didn't exist before and thus there were no backups from that location!
So, how do I find my old Mass Effect save files? Did Steam once put ME1/2 save files in a different location? I.e has the location of save files changed? If so, where did they used to be?
Has anyone else experienced Mass Effect save files disappearing? If so, how did you recover your save files/where did you find them?
If it makes any difference, I think my upgrade to Windows 7 was after the last time I played either of these games, so I wonder if the OS change may have also affected the save game location.
As suggested, I installed MASGAU, sadly it only finds the current, empty save directory.
