Restore saved data in ARK


This article will walk you through restoring your previous saved game in Ark: Survival Evolved.

  1. Log into your Game Panel.
  2. Go to the File Manager.                                                                                                              
  3. Go to this directory: \ShooterGame\Saved\SavedArks\ and look for the file "TheIsland.ark".      
  4. Rename the file name of "TheIsland.ark" to anything (e.g TheIsland_old.ark).
  5. Look for the save file that you want to restore. It should be in the same folder and has a naming convention like "TheIsland_29.11.2016_08.05.27.ark". Text highlighted in red is the date in DD.MM.YYYY format.
  6. Rename that filename to "TheIsland.ark".
  7. Restart your server.

NOTE: Look for the files with the map name if you are using a different map. E.g TheCenter.ark or ScorchedEarth_P.ark
