Note: If you are trying to find your game saves, please see Where are my saved games located? on this knowledgebase.
During gameplay, we will occasionally save your progress in the background. When this occurs, the most recent previous version of your game save will be stored in a designated backup location. The backup files (e.g., SAVE0_0.BCK, SAVE0_1.BCK, etc. for backups of SAVE0.HOB) are numbered from 0-9 (for ten backup saves in total). Of these, the oldest of the ten backups will be the first to be overwritten when a new save occurs and all 10 backups have already been created.
The backups are stored in the following locations:
For Steam builds...
- Documents\My Games\Runic Games\Hob\SAVES\[YOUR_STEAM_ID]\BACKUPS
For GOG.com builds...
- Documents\My Games\Runic Games\Hob\SAVES\BACKUPS
To restore, you can simply rename the desired file (for example as SAVE0.HOB) and place it in the SAVES folder. Steam users, take note: If you have Steam Cloud enabled, you will want to start the game launcher to trigger Cloud Sync first, then you can copy and rename the backup save into your SAVES folder while the launcher is running.
Note: Backup saves are only created in the PC version.
