Hello guys. As is said in the title, i accidentaly permanently deleted a world from the saves folder with shift + delete.
I tried with many programs to recover my world (recuva, pandora recovery etc) and i actually did recover something but not the whole , because now when i put it in the saves folder, i cannot select it in the game , it's like it's not there.
I'll put the save here so you can have a look and tell me if something it's missing or what's wrong.
I also tried the trick with previous version in the save folder, but it didn't work for me.
Thanks in advance

Probably the world isn't recoverable, because some important files are missing.

Thanks for the reply. I have the following , let's say, plan - you take a look at my world and compare it with one of your worlds, one that you are sure works , tp compare the content of them. Comparing, you can tell me what files are missing and i can look for them with pandora recovery , recuva or whatever and hope that the files haven't been overwritten yet, so i can recover them.

What you can do is take the seed (if you have it) and create a new world with that seed. It would be the same world depending on the time it was generated originally.

it seems that your region in the saves file is outdated...
