Have you ever loaded your game to find your saved game missing, or error code 13 while saving and lost your progress? To retrieve your saved game, do the following: 

Finding Your Saves Folder 
1. Go to My Documents
2. Electronic Arts 
3. The Sims 3 
4. Saves 


After that, find your saved game's name. If you named your game Sunset Valley, you should see: 
Sunset Valley.sims3 
Sunset Valley.sims3.backup
 


Instructions 
Rename Sunset Valley.sims3.backup to Sunset Valley.sims3 
Delete Sunset Valley.sims3 

If you have a file that ends with .bad, delete that. Anything that ends with .bad, delete. 

Start up your game, and your town will be back. The game will auto generate another backup file. If you don't have a backup file, all you need to do is just delete SunsetValley.bad, and your saved game should return.

Hi there,

We have a similar topic here: https://games4theworld.forumotion.com/t4523-the-sims-3-save-errors-fix-error-code-12-13-15-16-updated-24-11-2012 , but I see the Error 13 is not described in that one. (Even though the recovery is not actually a "fix" for the Error 13 problem)
I'll put a link in that guide to this one.

Thank you!
