Hi, yesterday I tried to run Dirt Rally but on start I got the message
"data load failed". It asked me to create new profile and overwrite
previous saved data.
I didn't want to do that because I didn't want to lose my progress, but I lost it anyway.
read some threads on Steam forum and Codemasters but they'are kind of
outdated to me - most of them are from 2015, back when Dirt Rally was
still in early access or right after relase so it is obvious in was kind
of buggy at that time.
I tried things that people recommended in threads I've mentioned above:
- remove files from userdata folder and disable cloud services in Dirt
- changed my Windows account so it doesn't have any "foreign" letters
- checked local cache integrity for Dirt and recently reinstalled
removed all files from Steam folder (apart from steam.exe and
steamapps) so Steam could download its files again and kind of refresh
- ran Steam and Dirt as an adminstrator
None of them worked for me
Everytime I run Dirt I get "data load failed" error and need to create a new profile.
You guys have any ideas to help me?
I should mention that that I wasn't playing it for a few days and during this time my Windows got an update (it's Windows 10 btw).
