Why has this error appeared?
This error sometimes appears when save data gets older. There is no guarantee that your files can be recovered but the method below does work for some players.
How do I clear the error and recover my saves?
Please note the following steps are not guaranteed to recover your save files but they do help some players.
- Please open File Explorer and visit C:\Users\[your.name]\AppData\Local\SniperElite4\PC_ProfileSaves\[your profile number]\
- You should see a collection of .sav files in that folder. Please right-click on slot0.sav and select 'cut', then right-click on your desktop and select 'paste'.
- Please go back into the folder, right-click on the file called slot1.sav and select 'rename'. Call it slot0.sav and then try launching the game again.
- You may still see a 'Corrupted Checkpoint' message but you should be able to get past that by pressing Enter a couple of times.
