Gears 3 Campaign progress and collectibles progress lost... again.

This is the second time this happened to me, where I signed in to gears 3 and all of my campaign progress was lost. As well as this I've lost all of my collectible progress as well. Luckily I've not lost my multiplayer rank but still, its annoying. Has anyone else encountered this problem or have any solutions to fix it?

It sounds like your save data is corrupted. When it happened the first time did you delete the corrupt file before you started again?.

Anyhow unfortunately that is your only choice, if you go into memory> games> G3 there should be a file checked with an exclamation mark.
(You will need to delete it).

It sucks but there is no way to recover a lost save, so it means starting again, yet again.

This has just happened for me, but I don't see a save with an exclamation mark.

When I view the stats pages everything else is there except the campaign collectibles but when you play a game you get the little popups that suggest it's counting kills, etc. from the beginning. :(

It also asked me to (re)configure my multiplayer preferences.

Hi LeiChat,
 

Do you see a save file at all for this title listed on your hard drive? Do you see any little !'s anywhere on your hard drive? Have you tried redownloading your profile to see if that helps? Let us know. We are here to help.

This won't help with your current save I'm afraid but I've been using a tip I picked up on the epic games forums I think. From time to time while playing go to options and switch your storage device to either cloud or a usb device. Next time it saves (end of multiplayer game or singleplayer act/chapter I believe) it will create a new (backup) save on the selected device and you can change back to your original device. Next time you want to make a backup, delete your current backup from the dashboard then repeat as above. If you do this regularly you'll always have a recent back-up to fall back on should your save corrupt.                                                                                                                                                

 Not sure if it's right or not but I've heard people recomend not quitting between games while game might be saving and always backing out to the title screen before quitting.

@Mister Rush, thanks. I'll give that a try.

@jdooks, thank you. I do have a cloud backup save, someone had suggested I did that recently, but I copied it down to a memory stick and when I select that save when starting Gears it unfortunately is still missing the campaign stuff.

As I've finished the campaign I'm only really worried about the Onyx medals achievement not popping. Have put a lot of time in to those so far. They do still seem to be counting up from where they were and fingers crossed the achievement still pops when they all are Onyx.
