    [RESOLVED] Failed to save the data. Retry the save?

    Hello I was wondering if anyone could help me. Been playing on PS4 since launch but have just built a PC and got the game last week and it has been running fine until today when the error "Failed to save the data." keeps occuring. Tried to delete the save data in documents but it keeps reloading it from somewhere else. Is the save data stored somewhere else or is there another way to sort it.

    I don't know if Crewchief has caused the problem. I wanted to try it out for first time, so I started Steam and Project Cars 2, went to Configure game's interaction with apps to turn on shared memory, changed it all to PC2 clicked back and it said "Failed to save data."

    Thanks for your help.

    It's synced to Steams cloud save as well.. turn off the cloud save (right click Project CARS 2 in the Steam library and select properties, cloud save is in there somewhere...)

    Hi, thanks for the reply. It was caused by Bitdefender blocking access, the alert must have got past me unnoticed.
