I know how you feel. My PS3 user was frozen, so I had to Quick Format everything. I had finished at least 3 game story modes. The Call of Duty ones are quick to finish. But Just Cause 2 took and Little Big Planet took me over a week! I have also already aced all Little Big Planet levels, so it makes it even more disappointing. Why didn't SONY think of making a recycle bin. The only plus side to it, is that I got my PSN account back. If someone knows how to restore game data, PLEASE, PLEASE tell me.
I was playing MW3 and all of a sudden my system pulls me out of the game to ps main screen and i saw that all my files and acc were gone....i lost everything ...exept the online trophys...i put my mail and pass again and my acc is back but my data is all lost...it happened with Call of duty world at war too...a year ago or so i had the same problem...anybody knwos why?
Ya i feel for u man, i got to chapter 5 on amazing spider-man and i wanted to load the game i pressed start and there was no menu or loader or anything, so i turned the system off and ALL of my data was gone.
This won't solve anyone's current issue, but, PS+ does give you 1gb of automated gamesave uploads. I had not given this feature any thought, but, in light of this thread, I have to say that I am really grateful for it.
I plan on upgradting my HDD to 1TB soon, and I will keep my old HDD in an enclosure to use as a backup.
