  • Select the save files except the last one
  • Right-click on the chosen files
  • Lastly, click on “Delete”

Step 4: Create a new save

Once you have backed up the saved game data and deleted the corrupted save files, it’ll be time to start a new game and create a new save. For doing that, you should follow these steps –

Once you have the name of the last save file, it’ll be time to rename your original save file (the one known as “HL-00-00.sav”) with the name of the last saved game file. This overwrites the new saved file. To do that, you should follow these steps –
