S**t my project has been corrupted because of sudden 1 minute blackout. I have a backup one but the progress is so far enough. I try to fix it from reading another thread, it fixed but the progress was gone. I don't know what should I do now. :95:

Learn from the mistake, make more frequent backups and go back to work is what you should be doing.

If you have your original "Data", saved, and it's just the project not working, just overwrite a new project with it. Works with the rest of the folders too.
If you were not saving often enough or your disk broke... I have been there and the only way to help the later is actually way worse, if even possible to do...

I lately keep my working projects in dropbox, google drive or such, so I can rollback in case any files get broken to prevent losing an entire project, besides my usual git workflow (which may be confusing, that's why I didn't recommend it).

If you're working on a desktop, it's never a bad idea for life generally to have a small UPS (uninterruptible power supply).

You mean original data is json files?

I think this is the solution that I need, because I don't want to backup frequently.

Well, a UPS is not an alternative to backing up your work. Losing power is only one way (and, depending on where/how you live, probably the least likely way) you can lose work.

But if you spend a lot of time on a desktop computer, it's a good idea to have.

Usually I backup my project when I want my friend to test the game. Next time I will backing up my project at least once per two week.

I was told by a friend to use Github version control, so now I can frequently update and uploading backup to Github. I feel safe now :kaoblush:
