saved games.. reverts to earlier position?

I am fairly new to FL.. however, I am really puzzled and a bit fed up with this oddity.. has any one got any ideas as to what is going on?

I have managed to get close to level 9 and have managed to get out as far as the Edinburgh system. I exited the game as usual and I assume the autosave kicked in as it had in the past. But, when reloading my game I find that suddenly I am back at level 7.. specifiacally Mission 4 "After meeting Van Pelt" and are having to defend Benford station.

What makes this all really strange is that the time stamp of the saved file corresponds to the time I quit previously.. which was just before level 9 as decribed above. i.e. quite few saves ago.

The only odd procedure I carried out was that after returning from my last adventure I noted it was going to cost 457 to fix my hull. Since I was unsure about the efficiency of Nanobots I decided to immediatly launch, carry out a hull fix and redock. This proved to be a fruitless exercise as the costs were about the same. So I then reloaded my last save before doing this "experiment." On reload I found that I had been "retrograded as described earlier..

The saved game files appear to corespond woiththe ingame time stamps.. so I guess somewhere along the line something has been overwritten.

Can I get out of this situation? Why did it happen? Has anybody else seen this problem.... HELP!

The best saves, is on a planet or at a station, create regular saves and not depend on the auto saves.

Thanks for the advice.. Finalday.

Unfortunately my manual saves beyond the point I have been retrograded to have gone.. the last 4 saves (inc manual) are all the same as decribed above.. this is a wierd one. I just wondered if any one else had experienced this problem and had any ideas..
