    Hi, so I was trying to download mods for the first time and I downloaded SMAPI and content patcher. As soon as I tried to load my game is said "No saved games found". I don't know what I did wrong or what to do now. I did back up my game before installing SMAPI and content catcher but when I tried to restore it, its still saying no saved game found.

    I dont know what to do, please help :'((

    so i read somewhere that going back to a previous save could help by going to "%appdata%" on my computer and when i went there i see this (picture attached)
    and i open the error log folder and it takes me to a text document and it says:

      It looks like the save files were completely deleted. I'm not sure how that happened, but it's probably unrelated to SMAPI since it has no code to move/delete saves.

      SMAPI does create a backup of your saves automatically when launched though. If you open your game folder, do you see a 'save-backups' folder?

        Yes, I do see it. What should I do now?

          Can you post a screenshot of what's in that folder?

                  Try this:
                  1. Press Windows + R to show a 'run' dialogue.
                  2. Enter this exact text to open the folder:
                    %appdata%/StardewValley
                  3. Create a Saves folder.
                  4. Copy the Ximena_230775504 folder from the 2019-10-17 backup into the new Saves folder.
                  If you load the game, is the save back?
