If Hades isn't saving your game, or if you're seeing an error that reads "Settings for current profile are corrupted, and cannot be read. Default settings restored.", please try the following:

 

  1. First, please add Hades to your anti-virus' whitelist.

  2. If you use Windows Defender, make sure the game's save folder, Documents\Saved Games\Hades, hasn't been blocked by Controlled folder access. You can disable this by following the steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4046851/windows-10-allow-blocked-app-windows-security

  3. Follow Step 5 here to disable OneDrive sync for Hades' save directory: https://windowsreport.com/access-is-denied-windows-10/

Although these are the most likely solutions, very rarely, there might be a problem with your folder or your hard drive. You can do the following to check the integrity of your drive on Windows 8 and above:

In Windows explorer:

  1. Right-click drive letter where your saves are located (usually C:\) > Properties > Tools > Check
  2. If errors are found, restart your PC and Windows will automatically fix them. This process can take up to an hour.
