I've installed Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition in my PC (Windows 10). The installation was successful and the game works fine. I saved and quit the game after playing 1 hour. When I again launched the game, I found there is no save happened and I verified the Characters Folder inside Bioware in My Documents. The folder is created with my character name and inside there is Saves and inside it there are Autosave_1 & slot_1 Folders but all the folders are empty. There are full permission for the folders too.

Tried reinstalling/restarting multiple times. Did not work. When I search in internet, they say it might be due to permission Issue, but full control is given for all folders .

Please help me to resolve the Issue.

  • Did you install it through Steam?

    Please specify whether you have a disk, origin, steam or gog version. Did you try starting the game as an administrator?

Hi The problem got resolved. MY Bit Defender Antivirus was protecting the folder "MyDocuments"which does not allows Dragon age to save this. I removed this controlled access folder permission in my Bit Defender and the game saves successfully.
