Saved game gone

I have been playing some every day since the game was released. Prolly only 12 hours or so. Today
my main character is gone and the progress has disappeared. What happened? Can I get my game back?
Thanks

I hope you can get it back. good luck.

Edited out your email address for you - not a good idea to leave that on a public forum unless you really like spam!

What platform are you on? You may be able to recover your save from cloud backup, depending on which platform and how you have your system configured.

I use PC. Windows 10 latest upgrade.
How do I recover?

Epic keeps their saves on your local drive as well. Disable cloud save and load locally is a great bet.
