Lost Save after new patch

Hi,
Just updated Borderlands 3 with the latest patch and booted the game to find put that I lost my save file.
I have played full game and all dlcs.
I dont have ps+
has it happened to anyone? is there a solution?
I already invested a lot of time just to start again.

Did you back up your save files to a USB or flash drive which is the same thing?

No. :man_facepalming:

That why then. Number one rule of thumb is to back up your save files. Otherwise it gone for good.
