My sons use the Java edition. On or around 10 December 2019, they lost the ability to access any of their worlds. I have since located all of their worlds in the following directory on our computer:
The last modified date in that folder is 10 December, which I believe is when there was an upgrade. My boys gave up and created new worlds and now play daily. But there are /no/ files modified after 10 December in the above folder. So is Minecraft pulling from a different folder now? How do I point Minecraft to the above location, or copy the files to the right directory? And secondly, how do I find the folder that hosts the files for the worlds they're currently using?
**I've already tried Restoring previous versions of the folder. The restore point only goes back to March 2020, but the boys last accessed these files in December, so I don't see any point in restoring.
Sorry if I sound dumb. I've been researching this all day and would welcome ideas. Thanks.
