Looking at the file size I fear your prefs.prop got corrupted and lost the association with the savegames and decision data.
You can try if you can restore it using the "restore previous version" feature (right click, "properties", "restore previous version") on that prefs.prop.
Your dxdiag shows some crashes, which are common on Windows 8 with gamepads/joysticks connected. They can be the cause of prefs.prop corruption, if they also happened just before you lost your savegames.
If the restore feature doesn't work, you can zip and upload your backed up prefs.prop and .save files and post a link in a reply. I can check if i can recover some of your progress.

Below you'll find a link to my save files as requested. I would be immensely grateful if you could recover as much of my game as possible. Thanks in advance.
