    You COULD do that, but its safe to just play a single game on your backup and it overwrites your game data without having to delete it. I think its further elaborated in the info post.

    and page 7? Thread, you're grounded. go to your room!

    lol they would not want anyone to shy away from buying the DLC there pumping out while the rank reset still exist.

    But ya this needs to be a sticky until they find a fix.
    I would like to thank

    I have to say I'm a bit dissapointed that there wasn't a rank reset fix in the new title update. I guess we'll have to keep bumping this thread for now

    I can't believe that this thread hasn't been made a sticky.
    Until Epic sort the issue out then making this thread a sticky is the least they can do IMHO.

    Seems more like they are addressing potential causes. Which if they can nail that down atleast can help stem the flow of resets.

    Bump! I have changed the title of the thread to encourage people to back up their data before they decide to Re-Up. There would be nothing worse than achieving level 100 for a second/third/fourth time and then losing it all!

    When you get a reset, even if you have a backup and restore it, you end up with loosing your collectives and unlocked stuffs?

    If you have a current backup, you woul get everything back. Your collectibles are part of your Campaign Saves file not your player data file, and are not affected by a rank reset. A campaign reset affects your collectibles and campaign progress but not your rank and medals.

    Hey Thievius,

    I don't know, if it has something to do with this subject, but since you know everything about back-up and stuff I'll ask you

    I recently have a strange problem: When I play private (online) Horde matches I cannot play with my default character Alicia Valera. When I choose her I play as Marcus Fenix. I already erased my Player Data (HDD and Memory Unit) but nothing works When I play Versus I don't have that problem or when I choose a different character. Do you know what to do? Thanks in advance.

    OK, Thanks! So, if you have a backup of both files, campaign and rank, you should be fine. Even if you got a campaign reset you are not going to lose anything, right? Just have to recover them from your backup. I saw on another thread, posts saying that backups wouldn't fix that.

    I'm sorry, but I have no idea what causes that. Try making a post in the issues forum to see if anyone else knows how to fix it. People are really helpful there.

    It has not been confirmed whether you can get your campaign/collectible progress back with a backup. Not many people have tried it as yet. I don't understand why it wouldn't work, but I have read a post from someone who tried and they couldn't get it working. So until more people are able to test it, it is still unconfirmed.

    Thanks for your answer, Thievius. Hope that no one needs to do that, then. Fingers crossed! ;P

    Thanks for making this thread. I just made a cloud and a USB backup to be safe. I was wondering if you could answer something for me though. Would I have to backup my dlc as well or is that saved to my player data? I don't want to lose my Characters and Skins.

    DLC is linked to your gamertag, not your player data. So they are unaffected by a reset. No need to back them up, but they can be copied if you want to.

    hey how come you never join us to talk about other topics? I don't think i've seen you outside your thread. Dont you wanna complain about the "nooby" sawed off or how "the gnasher sprays marshmallows" or that "pre-order chars should stay exclusive"?

    I believe as a user they have felt more inclined to post regarding this topic it being their own thread and personal crusade so to speak. Otherwise without said issue and the need to help others we'd see and even lower post count.

    Unlike me whos been absolutely bored at work and realize I can access the forums from my cell-phone.

    Most of the forum has taken up the fight as well. I know I come around a few times and bump this thread. I was just wondering about T. Sisko's opinions on stuff and it'd be fun to see her rage about her marshmallowy gnasher, lol
