I for example found one from July 1st, and that's what I chose. Restore it to that previous day. Then load up the game and your most recent save from when you finished Ep 2 should be there, along with your stats.

It's the 11th post down. I can confirm this worked for me when nothing else did!
Thank you so much! This worked perfectly well for me. You have no idea how much I was freaking out because I was just at the beginning of ep 5 and my game crashed
SO THANK YOU
