    Hey all, I'm a huge fan of starbound and was very excited to come back after almost a year away to play some more starbound.

    All my old files were gone, which was fine. I understood that likely would happen. So I make a new character and begin to play, about 2 hours in I take a break, come back and my character is gone. Not so big a deal, I can do it again. I make another character and put about 12 hours in with no problems until last night.

    I exited the game as I usually do, took a few hour break, came back and it's gone again. That's a lot of time I put in to this character and I had just finished a farmstead, it was a lot of work. It's gone.

    I have no idea if I can retrieve the files or what happened. I'm not using mods. I honestly want to cry a little bit, that was a lot of work and I'm really frustrated. It's making me really not want to play again and I was so extremely excited to play through all the changes (which so far had seemed so good!) I just really, really don't want to start over and do all this all over again.

    It may not be saving progress correctly. Try running the game as administrator.
