I play my mine craft on a Macbook Pro, Recently I had gotten it to work again, And saw my old servers. I played on a couple of them for awhile, But none had nothing much on them. I had a giant list of Multiplayer servers as that is all I played on. Recently, I signed on and realized that none of my Servers were there. I thought that maybe it was from me changing my username from chloe4068 to ScarletWolfGames, But even with the name change my servers were still there. I went to download an adventure map and Put it in the saves folder, In which, My old servers were still on. Well. My single player ones anyway. I thought my old servers would be back, I played again, They weren't there. Before I had played I had deleted copies of mine craft folders with the same things in them, well, same folders. I had then lost my servers, But seeing how they still exist but aren't in the game confuses me. Any help?

  • Single player servers? Are you talking about your savegames rather than servers perhaps?

  • Oh! Oh yeah! Forgot to add that onto there. Yes the folder I found was my saved games, I found my old servers while trying to download the Adventure Map, Which I had stated in the explanation. Oct 8, 2015 at 2:27
  • what are servers and what is save-games? I need more info to answer this. I may know an answer, but I need you to edit it to where we can tell the difference in servers and single-player games. Nov 3, 2015 at 15:55

The (multiplayer) servers are stored in the servers.bat file, which you might have deleted. Singleplayer worlds on the other hand are stored in the saves folder, which is in your case still there.

  • Isn't it servers.dat?
