    I wish I had read this before.

    A long time Wipeout fan (since 2097), I purchased HD as soon as it was released. For several reasons, I never obsessed myself with Trascendence until now, and I seriously started to work on Elite Campaign legend.

    I was already struggling with the last Meltdown cells, getting used to Phantom class and honestly seeing improvement. I was getting close.

    And last Friday...game data was corrupted. Just like that. No YLoD or anything happening to any other data.

    Amidst tears, I've just started from scratch, after 3 years. Well, fortunately some of those hours did help me improve a bit, and within the hour, I had reached Head Rush with all gold medals on Elite. I expect it won't take ages to get to where I was before the loss of data.

    Nevertheless, now I back up my data after each and every season. Just in case.

    Commiserations to Rincewind and Booney. I'm going to back up all my data tonight.

    @Colonel__Gaddafi:

    Thanks, buddy. However, this could very well benefit me in the long run. I'm already finishing the 6th event, and I'm finding it very, very easy to win races and tournaments on Elite Rapier/Flash/Venom.

    Going back to basics after a lot of time without playing Wipeout is helping me to polish long-forgotten skills.

    I expect I'll get to Meltdown events before the weekend, so no real loss, and I did get a ton of fun replaying the game. I had 0 medals in Fury events (didn't work on them at all), so no issues there either.

    Fortunately, I'm only 3 trophies away from Platinum (Elite Campaign legend, Beat Zico and Zone Zeus, of course), so even if I lost everything, I don't care for races won or rivals killed online, skins or anything else.

    I made some experiences today,and this is what I got:

    While the game is autosaving, DO NOT turn off the PS3 system,eject the disc or exit the game,this will bring data corruption to you in 45 of the cases...Also if you turn off the system in an online game it will also bring you a christmas data corruption for free! Wait for it to save or for the race to end (or abandon the race) before exiting the game for more safety
