Lost ALL of my progress.

Describe your issue
I have been playing Don't Starve (the Steam version) for quite some weeks now and am really enjoying it. I had recently unlocked all characters up to Wolfgang and almost unlocked all recipes through the two science machines. Yesterday I was playing as Wolfgang and had a base with about eight Turbo Speed Farm Plots, the two Science Machines, two Crock Pots and two Ice Boxes. I had also collected a fair amount of resources, mainly Stone, as the Rock Field is quite far away from my base.
Today, I start up the game and notice that ALL of my progress is gone. I'm back to Wilson again and have no other characters unlocked. My previous game is totally gone, even though Wolfgang didn't die. All my unlocked recipes are gone. What is the meaning of this? I managed to survive up till day 40 until now, which is a lot for me, and even when not dying for the 700th time, I still lose all of my progress. It's really aggravating, frustrating and annoying to put a lot of hours into a game trying to achieve a certain goal and then lose pretty much everything.
Does this issue have to do with the CloudSave system? I'm a technical n00b, so I don't know where Steam stores the Don't Starve save game files. Do I need to stay online while playing Don't Starve? It's annoying that there isn't a Load Game option in-game, but I do understand the intent behind this concept. Yet, it doesn't excuse me losing all of my progress when I finally had set up a good camp and was ready to take on some tougher enemies.
Don't Starve is a lovely game. I like it very much. But if issues like these keep popping up, erasing all of my data... I'm afraid I don't see any point in playing it anymore, beta stage or no beta stage.
Any help would be appreciated.
