As per the report, while it is not clear what might be causing save files to be corrupted, there are multiple people on CD Projekt Red's forum reporting that their save files over 8 MB are corrupted.

In a GOG.com support document, CD Projekt Red says that the save, once damaged, cannot be recovered. To avoid seeing the prompt, CD Projekt Red is recommending players to use an older save and keep lower items.

They have further stated that if players have used the item duplication glitch, players should load a save file not affected by it.

"The save file size limit might be increased in one of the future patches, but the corrupted files will remain that way," the developers have further informed.
