Save file deleting itself unasked

This is a bit of a dirty one, but I'm posting anyways.

After loading a saveslot I previously edited a file of (e.g. setting all trees to maximum size in the JSON), trying to overwrite that slot sometimes fails and the slot is gone (not sure if on load or on save). This is merely an annoyance with actual games, but it is fatal to User Generated Maps, as those cannot be saved in a different slot, nor published without an existing saveslot.

    Hey Mobbstar,

    Did you have the save file's folder open when trying to overwrite in the game?

    That'll create a conflict with Windows and it can in fact corrupt/delete the thing, both for savefiles and maps.
  • That sounds plausible. Thanks!
