Whenever there is an issue with your saved files, the game might not be able to properly save any changes that you make, or you may notice that some of your settings have been reset.
It is very important to keep in mind that saving issues may also occur due to a corrupted save file. A corrupted file may be a result of forcing the game to close or the device crashing. So be sure to always close the game properly! Do not leave it running in the background.
Below you'll find information on how to backup your saved files, as well as some troubleshooting options:
- C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My Games\Rocket League\TAGame\SaveData
- Find C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My Games\Rocket League\TAGame\SaveData
- Back up the files in the saves folder.
- Delete all files in the saves folder (not the backup folder)
- Start the game (which has now reset all settings and presets)
- Exit the game
- Replace the save files in the saves folder with the ones you backed up earlier.
- Launch the game again
How to back up your data
