I have a game that I have installed from the play store and the application creates a file when it starts. the problem is that when i do an update to the game the old save file gets deleted or overwritten. how can i fix this?

my file code in global script:

var save = {
    "value1": 1,
    "value2": 1,
    "value3": 1,

func _ready():

func save_data():
    var file ="user://save77", file.WRITE_READ)

func load_data():
    var file =
    if not file.file_exists("user://save77"):
        return false"user://save77", file.READ)
    save = file.get_var()
    return true

You can save it online online or use custom dir that doesn't deleted with app. Learn how to do it here (GitHub/Godot/Issues), EXOMODE's comment contains the answer
