PS4 Wiped ;( Don't Do This

PostWed Jun 28, 2017 10:11 am

Turned PS4 on last night and was greeted by a completely blank system as if it had been switched on for the first time - I had to go through full set up, set wifi, assign PSN ID etc etc

No f.cking clue what happened, looked on google and apparently if you put your PS4 in Rest Mode and then switch it off at the plug, it wipes the whole thing

I thought it would have wiped everything but luckily all my Library games and trophies etc are still there, just had to re-sort out the folders I had

But main upshot is that it has wiped all of my saved games/progress :(

So games that I had started / will not get to complete cos I'm not starting them again are Killzone Shadowfall, Black Ops 3, Unravel, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, and Alienation which I was enjoying and wanted to f.cking finish.

Games that I had progress on and dipped into have also gone back to scratch FIFA, Battelfield 1, Resogun and the kids will have to start again on Beach Buggy Racing (which they absolutely hammer) and Turtles

I've definitely done this before and it hasn't wiped my data? Is it only on older models?

That's odd then, must just happen randomly. At least you kept the library though, that would have been a huge pain if you lost that.

same as Tom, I've done this before and its never wiped

Plus, all my saved games data gets auto uploaded onto PS+. check you can't download it first, and if you don't upload it, turn it on!

When I upgraded to the PS4 Pro it was a piece of piss and I lost nothing

Putting PS4 into Rest Mode last night and noticed it does actually say DO NOT UNPLUG THE POWER CHORD WHEN IN REST MODE when you are selecting it :roll:

I've still pulled the plug and not lost anything, usually when doing electrics and isolate at the distribution board

And I know it says that message as I've seen it.
