Was playing an ironman Muscovy->Russia game and shut off the game to do some stuff. When I came back to the game the save file was gone from the saves tab, but when I checked the C:\Users\(ME)\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\save games, it is still there. This has happened several times already to my austria, mayan and ethipian games. So can anyone help me checked what is wrong? Attaching my Russia save files below.

That implies they are corrupted, but I don't know why you'd be getting that on a repeating basis.

Are there any mods involved here?

What antivirus app do you use?

Have you tried using cloud saves instead of local?

Your save files are corrupted and consist entirely of NULL Bytes (only 0 in binary). For several people who had that problem it was caused by power outages. I guess it can also happen if the save process is interrupted in some way(e.g. you press Alt+F4 while the game is saving or the game crashes while saving) or if the computer is switched off without shutting it down properly shortly after exiting eu4.
To avoid loosing to much progress because of it you could additional backups of your save games on a regular basis.
