How to Fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor Game Progress Lost Issue

Like many other players, if your game progress is also lost in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, then stick to this guide and learn all the potential methods to get it fixed.

Tweak in Save Files

The very first and most effective method to fix the game progress loss issue in Star Wars Jedi Survivor is to change the game save files. To do this;

– Go to the folder where the game is installed

– Go to the Respawn Folder 

– Then go to C >> Users >> %username% >> Save Games >> Respawn

– There you will see the file “Backup00.sav”

– Find out all the “.sav” files and delete “savegame00.sav”

– Next, rename “backup00.sav” to “savegame00.sav”

– Once done, relaunch the game and check if the issue is resolved

Most probably the issue will get resolved after performing this method. If not, then you can try some other generic workarounds to get it fixed.

Verify the Integrity of Game Files

Some missing or corrupted game files can also be the reason behind the game progress loss issue in Star Wars Jedi Survivor. If that is the case, try verifying the integrity of game files. 

To do that: Go to Steam Library >> Right-click on the game >> Properties >> Local Files >> Verify the integrity of game files. Once the scanning is done, try relaunching the game and check if the issue is fixed. 

Run the Game as an Administrator

If you have not given the game some privileges, it might function well and create issues including game progress lost or game progress not saving. So, in this method, try running the game as an administrator.

To do this: Close the Steam app, then right-click on the Steam app and click on “Run as administrator”.

Turn OFF Antivirus

An antivirus app is important for your PC but sometimes, it prevents the game from working properly. Therefore, try turning off your antivirus app and check if that worked. For this: Open the search screen on your PC >> Type “Windows security settings” and open it >> Virus and Threat Protection >> Ransomware Protection >> and lastly turn off “Controlled Folder Access”

Reinstall the Game

If the above methods fail, your last resort is to uninstall the game completely from your system and reinstall it.

That’s all for this guide. Hopefully, one of these methods will help you to fix the Star Wars Jedi Survivor game progress lost issue.
