GAME WIPED MY D DRIVE

Recommended Posts

ESCAPE FROM TARKOV WIPED EVERYTHING OFF MY D DRIVE 

 

I just bought this bloody game about 5 minutes ago. As I download the launcher, I set the installation destination onto my D drive. As the game started downloading, space started to free up on my D drive. After a couple of minutes, over 100GB of files HAD BEEN DELETED. I paused the launcher, but my D drive has been almost completely wiped. 

 

WHAT DO I DO?

It's a known issue unfortunately. 

You installed it to "D:/" and not "D:/EscapeFromTarkov".

Search for file recovery programms on google, maybe you have a chance to recover some of them... And try to not create new files on wiped disk, it may difficult the recovery. And notice, it may take a loooong time (in my case i formatted wrong partition and it was about 10hours and i recovered only a part of files and some of them were corrupted).

This seems like a dangerous bug to me.

A warning to the user that the destination folder will be wiped OR always suffixing "/Tarkov" on whatever the user chooses as a destination makes a lot of sense.

This "game" just wiped my harddrive too.

Lousy developers. Be careful with this thing.............

A "known bug" is something like a connection issue, this is a f*cking dumpster fire, how can they know this exists and not put up a warning. This 3 year old game with this 2 year old problem and it's devs just took 2TB of photos, text logs, and video games and f*cking incinerated it in the blink of an eye. F*cking POS developers need to focus on the glaring problems with their disaster of a launcher.
