Palworld – How to Restore a Corrupted Save

Restoring a Corrupted Save

My backup was erased yesterday when my pc failed. I hope this may assist other people. I was able to recover it, therefore I’m posting what I did here because I couldn’t find anything online.

This is how to do it for the Steam version, but it should work with both the game pass version and dedicated servers as well.

  • Disable save cloud Steam.
  • Go to C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Pal\Saved\SaveGames
  • You’ll get a folder with a hash, enter it, you’ll get your saves in folders named by another hash… Locate your savegame with the modification date and enter the folder…
  • Inside you’ll have a backup folder, enter it.
  • For the two folders (local and world), enter them and you’ll get folders named with the date and time of the backup. Don’t take the most recent one, but the one just before.
  • Copy the contents of the folder and replace in the save folder.
  • Launch the game, load your backup, build something and exit the game.
  • Reactivate the steam cloud backup, launch the game and choose to keep the local files.
  • Enjoy!
