lost save data, please help!

I exited the game without saving right after defeating the butterfly because I forgot to summon the whitch and when I started it back up my data was gone :-(, there wasn't even a load game option, just new game... Is there a solution to this or am I screwed.

Check your mydocuments... the save data is kept there. If there's no file or it's there but the game isn't reading it then you done goofed.

Restart comp. If that doesn't help... then learn from the experience and don't just alt+f4 on a whim. Also dowload DSfix and use the save backup option on it.
This is more intense than that time I forgot how to DO A BARREL ROLL!
Then I remembered to press Z or R twice.

Yup, you should only ever quit the game through the in-game options. Your save file is corrupt and non-recoverable.

Were you using DSfix that can make a backup copy of your save file?

well this is depressing news. There goes a weekend of endless gaming.... I'm playing on "steam" if that makes a difference. The only files I could find on my computer relating to dark souls were ironically the save files o_0
