I have played multiple account on this computer and my first account I played the files showed up but the rest of my accounts do not have the files saving in that folder. I can play the saves just fine but when I try to back up my files I cant find them. Where do the files go if not there? Any help please!
I do appreciate the assistance. I meant I've played multiple minecraft accounts on this computer. There is only 1 windows profile. I checked the appdata/roaming/.minecraft/saves file and the only saves in there are the 1st account I played not the rest. Obviously they are saved somewhere but it is not there. I have searched everywhere and I cannot find the answer.
The saves don't move just because you use a different minecraft account.
If you ever deleted .minecraft as part of some troubleshooting, then they got deleted then.
So, by default the saves go into your windows account %APPDATA%/.minecraft/saves
You can change that by setting the APPDATA environment variable to point somewhere else, and of course the new launcher let's you change the save directory for each profile.
You can search for level.dat files on your computer if you are sure that you couldn't possibly have deleted them.
