Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I couldn't really find any other section that was more relevent.
I played every week of the Beta for Gears 3 and unlocked everything there was to unlock. I knew very well not to delete the save file relating to the Beta and didn't. I even checked just before Gears 3 came out and it was still there.
I popped Gears 3 in the 360 and waited for the update to install and fired up the game. It went through the whole checking achievements and everything else and gave me the Medal for reaching rank 100 in Gears 2, the unlocks for the other achievements I had too. It then went through checking for Beta unlocks and gave me the gold retro lancer but nothing else.
If it gave me the gold retro lancer then the Beta save file must've been there as there's no other way to unlock it.
I read online about people having trouble getting all their Beta unlocks and knew I wasn't alone and that it would be sorted. So didn't worry too much.
After a few days of still nothing I decided to make sure my Beta save file was still there, no idea why, I must've got paranoid. To my amazement, it had vanished completely off my hard drive.
It was there before I played Gears 3 and has now disappeared without a trace.
I'll say this again for those that will assume I deleted it, I did NOT delete it. I checked just before Gears 3 came out and it was still there.
I've tried posting the same on the Epic forums but have got no response other than one person saying the same thing happened to them too. So it's not an isolated incident.
Do I have any recourse of action or am I up you know where creek without a paddle?
