I don't know what happened.  I followed your instructions when my old computer was dying, and then again followed them onto the new computer.  Fabulous!  It worked.  But last week, I had a feeling and backed up my Sadie game files again on a flash drive, and sure as shooting, my Sadie game was lost.  My other games were fine.  I tried to reload my game from the backup I had made before the loss from the flash drive, and it would not recover the game.  I had followed the same directions as before, but it would not work this time.  I don't understand what happened.  I even tried to go back to the original transfer and it wouldn't take that either.  What am I doing wrong?

One thing I just noticed that may have affected the backup, is that the "Content" folder is dated 05/31 while the backups were 05/30.  Is this the problem?  Is there any way to fix it?

When you say your "Sadie game was lost," what exactly do you mean?

A little over a year ago my game just completely reset back to level 1 with no inventory, nothing. It was like I was starting a brand new game but I still had the same old ID number. I tried restoring from my backup (I do these weekly) but it wouldn't work. I even spent hours on the phone with our forum "resident techy" Dhyani and she wasn't able to get it to work either.

I had to contact BigFish Customer Service. They weren't able to restore it either. They put me back at the level I was at (maximum) and gave me some inventory, coins, diamonds, pets, avatars, etc. But they couldn't do anything about all of the achievements and some other things.

Good luck!

I have Sadie ***548 as a friend and it's still showing in my game, is this you?

My Sadie ***548 game does not show up for me.  It went to 903*** number starting at level 1.  No matter what I try to do to get my backups to fix it, it does not help.  It stays at 903*** level 3 as I did work it some as was recommended.

I can also see my Sadie ***548 game on my feeder games.  I just can't get to that game.  I keep seeing the 903*** level 3 game when I go to enter my Sadie game.

I got my game back!! Yea!!  Apparently my game did not like the "logfile.txt"  it only liked "logfile", and it did not like "save.db", it only liked "save".  When I changed those, it brought my whole game back.  My original ***548 game.  Thank you all for helping me.  I would not have started over a second time.
