    Hi everyone,

    Today i was working on my proyect and suddendly my computer restart, i have activated the autosave and i saved manually before the shutdown, like 2 minutes before, when i open unreal again the level i was working were missing and in the Content Browser in Unreal is gone but in my windows explorer its ok.

    i have the two main files(i think) and a lot of autosaves and back ups.

    I've tried everything i´ve seen in this forum but nothing seems to work

    I was working with the 4.15.1 version and i updated to the 4.15.2 when I saw that my level was gone thinking the update could resolve this issue, i dont think that the problem were that because its a small update and before i did it my level were missing too

    I already tried this:

    1- Try to import the umap and the uasset----- i get this message "Failed to import....unknown extension 'umap'"
    2- Make a copy of the project and delete the CachedAssetRegistry.bin in Intermediate folder
    3- Make a copy of the project and delete the Config, Intermediate and Saved folder
    4- Create a new project and put MyLevel.umap and MyLevel_BuildData.uasset in the exact same folder(of the original project in the new one) and try to open it from Unreal

    And maybe a couple more things but nothing works



    I need help please i´ve been working on this level for hours and i dont want to do it again


    Thanks and sorry for my english.

    Have you already tried to use the autosave or backup files -> just look for .umap files - copy the latest one - paste it into your map folder (in the content folder) - try to open it

      I tried and it works, i have my level back but without materials or textures but i dont care

      if i had blueprints they would have dissapear too?

      i will do a backup every time before closing Unreal

        Never had the case that a blueprint or any other uasset file has disappeard
        Either always make a copy of your umap file or just regularly save it two times (2 different names) -> then you will be nearly 100% save that it wont disappear again
