doesnt restore

Post by dfssdf » 25 Sep 2018, 14:37

When I restore game saves (*.gsba) via GameSave Manager, it says that the restore task was completed successfully.
But when I open the games or even destination-save folders (for example - C:\Users\ me \Documents\American Truck Simulator) I can’t see the "restored" save anywhere.

GSM - 3.1.455.0
Windows - 10 x64, 1803

Are you checking the directory that's specified within GameSave Manager?
If you're running GameSave Manager with elevated rights (i.e Run as Administrator), the v3.x branch has a tendancy to use the Administrator user profile (i.e C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\...).

Is that as yes to you running as an administrator?

I'd suggest you disable this for restoring user-specific saves. You can do this by making sure the "Run this program as an administrator" checkbox is unchecked on the Properties -> Compatibility tab of gs_mngr_3.exe (you may also need to do the same via the Change settings for all users option in the same tab).

Forgot to answer in time. :roll:

I found a working solution on a steam forum:

Go to Windows Defender Security Center and go to Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings
and look for something like "controlled folder access" and make sure that is toggled to OFF.
