Step by step guide to recovery a lost account based on personal experience.
Not to worry, there was (for me) a very easy fix that I found after poking around in the game files, and I hope it can be of use to you as well.
Time to get back that precious file!
(This PC > Local Disk (C:) for me)
Now find Program Files(x86)
Now you need to find the file named 678800, this is where SAS 4 stores its save data
Then local > Data
Now select Cache, but we will be coming back to here and selecting Docs in a moment.
Then com.ninjakiwi.link and now you’ll be met with this screen:
Select 60d8e62c3085427faca7fb6c (the top one)
Now you should see this file, copy it, and go back to where you selected Cache, and select
You should be met with this screen:
Delete these files and replace them with the Profile.save file you copied earlier.
Steam > userdata > 927085347 > 678800 > local > Data > Cache > com.ninjakiwi.link > 60d8e62c3085427faca7fb6c > “Copy Profile.save”
Steam > userdata > 927085347 > 678800 > local > Data > Docs > 60d8e62c3085427faca7fb6c > “Replace the files here with the save file you just copied.”
Also, if you want, you can take the copied Profile.save and put it somewhere else with a clever name like “SAS 4 Backup” to make sure it never gets lost. The downside is that you will have to do that everytime you play for your manual backup to stay up to date.
