  • Can someone fix the question title? I have no idea what "without going on Minecraft" means. – Denilson Sá Maia Jan 16 '11 at 21:00

As the Minepedia mentions, your save files are in:

~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves/

If you were running Linux, it'd just be:

~/.minecraft/saves

If you were running Windows, instead, it'd be:

%APPDATA%\.minecraft\saves\

In all cases, you can reach the correct folder easily with your file manager of choice using this little trickery:

  1. Start Minecraft
  2. Choose "Mods and Texture packs"
  3. Choose "Open texture pack folder"
  4. Go up a level
  5. Open the saves directory.

  • But i am stuck when i get to saves i click world 1 and it comes up with many folders these folders are labeled 0,1,1a,1b... and once you clicked one, it takes you to more folders which are labeled the same if you click any of them you will come across vfd files which are the ones with the traffic cone logo – Ben Jan 16 '11 at 10:02
  • @Ben as Kevin Reid said, you only need to upload the levels.dat file directly into the World folder of interest. – badp Jan 16 '11 at 10:05

    @Ben In this case you have two answers that need a checkmark ;) – badp Jan 16 '11 at 10:22
  • I don't think this answer applies to the Windows 10 version (Bedrock? v1.2+). Can someone propose another answer or update? – bobthechemist Dec 30 '17 at 12:10
