My save with 1000+ hours playtime got corrupted. Started fresh and after about another 100 hours my save got corrupted again.I think this "service that will allow you to recover backed up saved data" was a big lie to shut up those of us who were upset there wouldn't be cloud saves.

With a hacked switch use JKSV to back up data.

"This will prevent players from hacking into their save accounts." That's a dumb reason on so many levels.

That's unfortunate ☹️ I hope you can get it back or at least be able to get something similar

Darn. My switch is acting crazy and will be sent in for repair once repair centers open. I was really hoping to back up new horizons because the saves on it will definitely be wiped.
