    I back up my character (copy all the files in the the save folder to a folder called "Level XX") every couple of levels or so. I tested whether those files work early on, and they indeed appear to restore the character to that backed up state. To be even more secure, keep those backups on a seperate drive.

    You might have some data recovery options available to you to salvage your old character, but at the very least, start backing up in the future. My condolences on your loss...

    I was just online trading, and I traded for a special short sword, and when I looked in my inventory, the sword was untouchable... I got worried and tried to leave the game. When I tried to rejoin any game I got a messages that said bad item. I then got frantic trying to rid myself of that evil item, and lo and behold when I started a single player game... my level 25 character was reduced to level 1 ! Don't let this happen to you... always backup your character before playing in the morning and after finishing playing in the afternoon or evening ( or Early morning :-> )

    Okay I pulled the pin...
    NOW WHAT?
