Hi! Wouldn't it be able for Astroneer to automatically back up each new saved game? The old game is saved as a backup. In the game "Terraria" this is how it happens, the old game becomes a ".bak" file. I just lost my whole world (37K) from one second to the next because of a lack of energy. If there was an automatic backup it would have been simple to resolve. I don't know if it is simple to program a routine for this. --- What's interesting, is there used to be backups of saves. I don't know when or why the Astroneer stopped happening. The game used to keep 2 copies of saves though. Regards! P.S. - My Save attached "The crash happened in the middle of saving, it 0'd out the save fale and crashed before it could actually save world data." (Spyci - Discord Astronner Server)
Astroneer Backup Hi everyone! I decided to make this backup tool for Astroneer after seeing all the posts about corrupted or unplayable saves, which I've also dealt with. I'm still new to development, so this is by far the biggest project I've worked on. Let me know what you think, and feel free to provide any constructive criticisms or bug reports. Download Astroneer Backup Version 1.2 EXE Clean Scan PS1 Clean Scan Made by Xech Written for Astroneer 126.96.36.199 on Steam - Authored April 2019 What does this do? This tool backs up Astroneer saves while Astroneer is running. When Astroneer closes, it stops watching for changes. You can choose how long you want backups to be kept. The Astroneer install is not changed in any way by this tool. When saves are backed up, they're copied here: %userprofile%\Saved Games\AstroneerBackup How do I use it? - Astroneer Backup is best run from the .EXE. - The .PS1 is included if you'd like to examine the code. - It must be run as Administrator. It will try to ensure this. - To enable backup, type 1 and Enter at the Main Menu. - To disable backup, type 2 and Enter at the Main Menu. - To open the backup folder, type 3 and Enter at the Main Menu. - Backups are kept for 30 days by default. 10 backups are always kept. - Backup will only work if this appears in the Main Menu: Backup ENABLED: True How does it work? - A backup folder and backup script are created. - A scheduled task is created that invokes the script. - The task is triggered when the Astro.exe is launched. - The backup script copies .savegame files when changed. - Backups older than the backup lifetime are deleted.
