title says it all. and don't suggest going on the launcher, because if that's all it took i wouldn't have posted. Every time i try to log in it gives me login failed, no matter how many times I try or if get it right or not. It's not in the recycle bin, I deleted the folder because it was ruined by a mod pack I downloaded. I do have backups, but I have no Idea how to make the backup work. sorry if the fix is blatantly obvious, I'm new to this sort of thing.

Register or log in to remove.

I'm asking how to get it back after deleting it, not how to find it...

It shouldn't have deleted any info.  I know you may hate this but try going onto the website and see if it will install on there.

Reinstating backups is just doing the reverse of how you made them.   If all you did was copy the minecraft folder, then all you have to do is copy your backups into the working folder.

As a standard rule, everything deleted by the user is moved to the recycling bin and held there until emptied.  If its emptied, theres no getting back.

You don't.   If you lost your one copy of the world save, your not getting it back without some very very expensive data recovery services.
