    Default Back Up your game save data PLEASE- WHY!

    Oh man this is embarrassing for all long term Wipeout HD players.

    I sent a random call for "Bling Brigade" help out to a few long term forum members here, and a few from Wipeout Arena [including one of it's administrators ] .....shock horror

    More than half reported back that they had suffered YLOD or some other data transfer stuff up, and had NOT SAVED their Wipeout HD Game Save Data and as such, no longer had a "Chrome Skin".
    So are effectively useless to call on when needing help for a Bling Brigade GG

    This situation sucks big time.

    Could anybody that is suffering the same problem please report it in this post , then at least I, or anybody else that requires help for a Bling Brigade GG doesn't waste their time.
    Thanks.

    I'm not that hopeful of online backup PS+ storage either after all the shambles of earlier this year.
    That's apart from the personal information that is made available at Sony's usage, since they are storing it.
    I don't trust corporations full stop, give them as little info about yourself as possible....they only deem information as a asset that can be sold on to 3rd parties.

    I mean, a decent sized USB stick is all you need to give you safe back up.
    You can always download the USB's sticks data to a folder on a PC, then make multiple copies.

    I'd make sure your hard drive isn't dying if I were you... Unless the corruptions aren't happening as quickly as I understand from your posts.

    I had my latest save corruption a week ago. And I'll never bother to back up my data (or get the silver skin back), it's pointless imo. I'll spare you my opinion on Bling Brigade (or how pleasant it is to be evicted out of a 5 player room).

    They are taking about 1-2 months to happen,but I'm not really bothering anymore...When the leaderboards start updating again I can always get better records

    Also,only WOHD is having this problem...

    That's strange the data corruption is only happening to HD, if others are suffering the same fate it might explain why the records have not been updated as they would be sending corrupt data to the server.

    Although the only game I've ever had corrupt data with is Assassin's creed II, so I suppose it's not that unusual.

    The way things look at the moment I doubt the records will get sorted till shortly before 2048 goes on sale in Feb, when they will want it all nice and tidy again for those new to it who want to crossplay the HD/FURY portion of 2048 via the VITA.

    Yeah, I had the problem during the summer and had to replace my ps3.

    When I got back into Wipeout HD, I didn't have the same status I used to have. It was a little bit like having a stroke, I guess.

    I don't really care about that stuff anymore, anyway. I usually switch the game on and choose some online settings that fit my mood, and just race.
