My friend and I were playing Minecraft over LAN, and my friend was the host, then she logged off. 5 minutes later we tried to log back in and all my stuff was gone, and I wasn't even in the same spot where I was previously. I don't know what happened. She was playing over Windows and I was using iOS.

I need my stuff back, I was so happy because I had found diamonds for the first time in my life :(

  • There is a lot that is unclear here. But let me start by asking whether your inventory was completely empty or reverted to a previous state.

  • I assume your friend was playing the Minecraft Windows 10 version, right?

If she was hosting the LAN and she logged off before you could (Save and quit) then it is likely that a saving error occurred on your device, because you couldn't save before the host logged off. To prevent this you should log-off before the host of the LAN closes.

  • You could test to see if the diamonds you found are where you found them before, if they are then it was a saving problem. (If you know where they are)

If you were not logged in and you changed your name this makes the game think you are a different person playing on the same console/device. Therefore if you were to change your name back to the original your problem would be solved.
