    Lost data since got new system

    Not gonna lie, I'm pretty pissed off atm. Got bored of Uncharted 2 MP, so decided I'd go back to LBP2. This was first time I'd played it since having my new system [320gb slim from a 60gb phatboy] and having done a data transfer to it. Loaded it up, and it can only find my save file from LBP. I had 3 levels left to ace and a few other things to clean up. Now I have to start again. I was told to back up the save before I transferred, so I did. It is even there in my game data. I have got to my pod to try and import it but it can only find the Little Big Planet save file. Fucking thing.

    So I got pissed off with the thought of having to start again, so loaded up Uncharted Drakes Fortune to try and blast through crushing in order to finally platinum it, and surprise surprise the data is gone for this too As much as I love Uncharted series, I'm not exactly ecstatic to have to complete the game on hard, AGAIN, just to load up crushin...

    Has this data loss happened to anyone else? I thought a data transfer was meant to transfer ALL data? I haven't noticed any other problems other than having to resync my trophies several times...

    Honestly I am not sure what your problem is. It should have all carried over. Try transferring it again.

    Ps+ isn't an option for me, I can't afford it atm. And like I said, I did back it up beforehand anyway, so it should work...

    And nope, can't retransfer it because I sold my phatshit Guess I don't really have a choice but to re-start it all do I?

    Suuuuucks.

    Using the data transfer option. With an ethernet cable. Everything else is backed up so I don't understand why this wouldn't..

    That's weird, very weird. I did the data transfer about 2 years ago and everything went over fine except that for almost every game i'd have to re-sync my trophy list (which was only a minor inconvienience). Have you tried looking on, say, sony's website for anything on this? Or perhaps Littlebigplanet 2's website?

    Yeah I have had to resync trophies about 10x, but nothing major. But I couldn't see anything about it on LBP's website, haven't got round to it on Sony's yet..

    Bit late now I guess, but I know for the future if it happens again... Guess I got no choice but to replay it again really. Just annoying.

    Thanks for the replies guys

    this happened to me,but i used an external hard drive. i deleted my data by mistake. luckily i got some new games,so i had something to play without having to start all over.so you can either replay your games or just save up and get some games you have always wanted.

    best of luck
