Disney Dreamlight Valley Data Corruption Leaves PlayStation Player Distraught
Protect your saved data.
The thing every gamer fears, a data corruption that wipes clean all their saved progress in their favorite game. Recently a Disney Dreamlight Valley player expressed this, having put in so many days worth of hours into the game, and also having purchased the Founder’s Edition Early Access pack as well. Data corruptions are something that doesn’t happen all that often, but when they do, it is a horrifying event.
Imagine for a moment putting 60 or more hours into a game, especially where a player has taken the time to decorate their world to their heart’s content, discover tons of collectibles, and complete a variety of missions, only to then wake up and have it all gone. That’s enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine.

A Reddit user shared with the victim of the corrupted data how their cloud save could be used to help them get their data back. Cloud save is a feature many people take advantage of to be able to back up their data to online storage, which can also be used in cross-save play between Xbox, PC, PlayStation, or the Nintendo Switch. This means players can pick up their last save on any of their consoles.
At the end of this, it might be a good idea for all players to turn on cloud save to protect themselves from losing their save files. Hopefully, this user was able to recover their progress as well.
