Unfortunately, your save data could not be repaired by the Recovery Wizard system and it got deleted by it.
I'm afraid that unless you made a backup save before the update, your data is permanently lost.
From now on, there is nothing we can do.
However, as precised in the patch note, the Recovery Wizard is still in its first version, and cannot solve every corrupted data problem yet.
Thank you for taking the time to report us your problem, and sorry again for that issue.
@Mzulft I can still see the saved game data of the gang so it isn’t deleted. It is still there in system storage.
I have lost a lot of hours of play but if it doesn’t happen again I suppose I can start a new gang. The one thing that pains me is the story mode. It is a chore to play and I was only playing it to unlock customisations options. Is there any way these can be unlocked for me to make up for losing the campaign gang?
Your save is probably hosed. I've tried story mode twice. 1st time game crashed and lost everything like you. Played operations and got to 225 infamy on patch 1.1. Played story mode to ch 11. Game crashed and lost all infamy, so manually deleted game saves, and started over again. Suggest playing story mode before any operations, save game files off console after every chapter. Multiple locations for safety. If crash then revert to copied save files and replay the chapter. Once through story probably shouldn't play again unless want to risk infamy points. And still save between chapters.
Hoping issue is fixed next patch.
