The importance of backups and multiple saves cannot be overstated. Sorry for your loss.

PSA
IT IS OF MAJOR IMPORTANCE TO BACK UP YOUR SAVE FILES AS ZUKERO HATH MENTIONED ABOVE

I have a backup of all my AT savegames. And I have a backup of that backup (seriously).

Install, for example, Dropbox, on your phone. Every now and then, copy your entire andors-trail folder to the Dropbox folder. It will automatically be backed up to the cloud. You can then smash your phone, throw it in a lake, set fire to it, or whatever, and your savegames will be safe.

*nods, i just transfer it to my laptop, and then transfer it to my external hard drive. :D but the only issue is accidently deleting it when i do my yearly cleaning. :O

---edited to add...

i am also tempted to test your theory if earth, water, and fire... :3

---edited again to add,
i don't mind starting over again... i mean i am sure by the time the next big update comes, i should be caught up with my first. :3

Me too. Google Drive is my friend. My original character has survived 3 or 4 phones because I am meticulous with my saving and backing up.

All 10 of my characters are backed up in Google Drive. After completing all new content, or gaining a legendary or extraordinary item, I back up the file.

*nods, i shall back up once i catch up to the previous one's level, the back up again once i catch up to the previous one's quest completion. Which then back up after each completed quest. :3 or obtained Ledendary items.

a personal thing...
i feel this was a strange warning, one of our dogs irl was put to sleep this morning... first time i experienced this... thankfully i can use AT as a cathartic release.

Save the game bevore every levelup to a new savegame (which is then correlating with your actuall level). :idea:
Overwrite the first 2 or 4 savegame positions for actual game savepoints one/two Chars. Use the option to ask when overwriting savegames with different names.

So it is very unlikely to override a well developed Char with a new started second Char (with different name).

Doing this for years and even if I decide to go a different char development way, I don't have to start from the beginning.
