Recover Amnesia Rebirth Save Files
If for whatever reason, you have lost your save files, here is how you can recover it.
Check if Save files are being written
Before you do so, make sure that the save files exist in the first place, and are being written properly. Head to the following locations to check.
Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Frictional Games/Amnesia Rebirth/Main
If you don’t see your save files here, that means you can’t recover those. This is because the game wasn’t given admin permission to create those save files in the first place. To do this, simply run the game as admin so future save files are properly written.
Save files exist in a folder with your Steam user name
If this is the case then restart Steam to force the game to update to the latest version. This should resolve your issues.
Save files exist in a folder called Default
The developers accidentally released a patch without Steam Cloud saves, which meant that save files ended up in the Default folder. To resolve this use one of the following techniques
Manually log in as Default user
Right-click Amnesia Rebirth
Click the “SET LAUNCH OPTIONS”
Enter: -user Default
Copy files to the other folder
Select all files in the Default folder and press ctrl+c
Go into the folder with your Steam user name. (for example daniel_123891230F)
