Hi, this post is essentially the title. I upgraded to a better computer, (both computers are Windows 10) and wanted to move a world between the old computer and the new one. So I go into file explorer on the old one, copy the world's folder, and paste it into Dropbox. I go onto the new computer, open up Dropbox, and copy-paste the world's folder from Dropbox into the Minecraft saves folder. So far so good, but when I open up Minecraft and click on singleplayer worlds, the world's not there.
So I open up the folder in File Explorer and open it up on the new computer, but there's a problem: the level.dat, level.dat old, the session, and the icon were lost in transfer - all files that weren't in a folder.
Now the problems start multiplying. When I open up Dropbox, the non-foldered files were gone as well. I open up the old computer, Dropbox refuses to open. This has happened before, though, so I go to uninstall Dropbox and it gets stuck at 2/3's of the way there. I wait 10 minutes, reboot my computer, and try again. Dropbox still doesn't open and still gets stuck 2/3's of the way there.
So I open up the browser edition of Dropbox, it claims the non-foldered files aren't there. Panicking slightly, I opened up Dropbox's File Explorer folder and it claims that the non-foldered files are there. Now I'm panicking and I plan to post all this to the Minecraft forum as well. Is there anything I can do? Please help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
There's nothing in the deleted files that wasn't meant to be deleted. The files are still on the old computer, but because I accidentally signed up for the Dropbox Business free trial and forgot to cancel, it's not allowing me to upload files via the browser-based dropbox, and Dropbox still won't open on the old computer, I'm unable to reupload anything. Thanks for the help!
Oh, and I've been informed via the other forum I've posted this to that the 4 missing files are small enough to be sent by email. No further help will be needed, but if you want to pursue this question, I'd be happy to help you.
