Well, this is a first for me. I logged in to MC and everything I placed in a chest early this morning is gone. I did not die. I simply put down 2 chests to make a large chest. I emptied all of my inventory into the chest with the exception of 1 pick axe. I just logged in now approx 14 hrs later and everything I put in the chest is gone. I'm so frustrated! I play survival vanilla MC. nothing fancy. Any ideas of how i could get my things back or if it's even possible? What happened here?
well, I did have a sort- of strange experience just about an hour before i put the items in the chest, but it may be coincidental /unrelated. I fell from a bridge that i made and died as a result. It was really far from my spawn point so I assumed my items were as good as gone. I picked up a few items from a chest at my spawn area and began the long walk back to the site where I died to continue working on the bridge.
At least an hour had passed since I had died when all the sudden, I discovered (at a distance) my previous items were partially on the shore/ partially in the water. I was elated given the fact a long amount of time had passed and they were actually where I fell. As I got closer to my items, I remembered that my inventory had become full once again, but I happened to have chests in my inventory, so as I become close enough to actually pick up items, I put a chest down and started emptying my inventory into it so I would be able to pick up the old items. As I was putting my (new/current) items into the chest, I noticed that I appeared to have picked up some of the previous items, but I wasn't sure exactly what I picked up at first, as some of it was similar to items to what I had picked up once again since my death. However, I knew that before I died that I had sheers and I knew I did not have any since my death.
The sheers popped up in my inventory but as soon as that happened, all my other old (pre-death) items disappeared. So the only thing I was sure that I recovered was the sheers. Everything else just disappeared.
At that point I figured it was just bad luck... that I had stumbled upon my items just as they were disappearing. I was happy to have recovered anything at that point.
I got almost all the items out of the chest (that I had just sat down) and continued on my way to gather more resources. I gathered til once again my inventory was full and I went back to the area (near the bridge) that I am using as a home base (not my spawn point).
That is when I sat down the 2 new chests and decided that I should go ahead and put everything from my inventory (except one pick axe) into the large chest, because... I knew that if I died again, it was a long walk back, I wouldn't recover anything I had and I really didn't want to change my spawn point. AT that point I decided to go ahead and save & quit, exit game etc.
Upon logging back in hours later, the chest was completely empty. I know I had picked up the sheers, but they weren't in the chest or my inventory... just gone.
The two circumstances may be unrelated, but it struck me as odd.
I've died plenty lol. I've lost many, many items... I do know that's just how it goes... but items disappearing from a chest... well, that's new for me lol.
Only the items I put in the large chest that I set down (2 small to make 1 large) and filled just before logging off disappeared. My other chest & items were fine.
As a side note.. i play on pc mostly and it was on pc that these items disappeared. If i had been playing on xbox, I would have thought that maybe it didnt save before I logged out. However, as I said, I was on pc... and I am pretty ocd about logging out correctly and the same way every time.
I think it must be a glitch or bug or something. I just hope it never, ever, ever happens again lol!
I sure would be interested to know if anyone else has ever experienced this.
@ratelslangen- i wondered if it was a proximity/chunk issue with picking up the stuff from earilier.. but from the time it filled in to the time i got there and the things disappeared.... well.. it seemed a lot less than 3 minutes lol
i really think my experience with the stuff from my death and the chest which was a good hour later are unrelated... it was just frustrating to have the 2 events happen in the same evening : /
This happened to me too but in pocket edtion on my ipad mini. but the chests where gone and the stuff in it is gone too. i ussaly play in this world multiplayer with my friends but they cant join if im not in and they need the same wifi as mine too.
The same thing happens to me! I started a new world because it kept happening, I thought it was corruption or something, but now it's happening in my new world. It's so frustrating! Just yesterday I went on a long mining trip and dropped off chest full of stuff before I logged saved and quit, but when I got on today the stuff was just gone!
This happened like 4 times in my past world before I bailed on it, which really sucked.
I've also had times where I'm building and then I'll save, come back later, and the progress will be gone.
I don't understand if is lag or corruption or errors, but it really angers me. :/ Please let me know if you've figured out what is going on! Thanks!
A similar thing happened to me. In my survival world I have a skeleton xp farm and I use potions to kill large amounts after being AFK for 30 to 40 minutes. I make health potion tier level 2 and put them in a chest in the potion room 33 blocks away. The weird thing that happens is when I go back there are no health potions left. I don't log out, I only close the tab ad watch Netflix or Youtube or something. WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING!!! PLEASE HELP!
My case is... almost the same but not.
I am missing only ONE item, but it's my diamond pickaxe so I am quite irritated with this since I had only about 8 diamonds before and now have 5, and still have NO IDEA why my pickaxe vanished on me.
Since I was building a house and wanted to use obsidian, I used 3 of my few diamonds for the pickaxe and was using them perfectly fine. On Monday, when I was almost done with minecraft for the night, I decided to put my pickaxe inside one of my home's chests (that I have been using since forever with no problems before) and then saved and quit the game the normal way.
Next day I was sad to find that I had some trouble with the internet and then decided to play offline since the game works that way too. Then when I went to pick the item back in my chest, it was gone. Just... gone. and that was the ONLY THING GONE. All other items there were perfectly fine. I looked through all my chests thinking I just misplaced it but no luck. Today, when I logged in (this time with working internet and all) I tried to check my chests again and nope, no sign of my diamond pickaxe. I did not die at any moment throughout this time, closed the game the correct way, and have no idea what the daisy happened.
I NEED MY PICKAXE, DANGIT! I DIDN'T FIND THAT MANY DIAMONDS IN MY CURRENT WORLD AND HAVE TONS OF THINGS IN IT TO SIMPLY RESET AND CREATE ANOTHER ONE!! T-T
This same thing happened to me. I had gone to The End to go to my Enderman farm to get xp to enchant a diamond sword. I logged out and changed from snapshot 14w03a to 1.7.4 because the game had messed up and i could not click on anything. When I logged back in, all my items were gone, I went back to base, and everything in my 9 double chests were gone to. Nothing else was missing, not even the stuff in my furnaces, just the stuff in my chests and inventory.
There is over 10000 files in minecraft. 24 of them are targeting chests. One of these files may be corrupted, or the item has not successfully inserted into the item file in the chest module.this could be lag, snapshots, or low internet.

Hi, has anybody figure out this problem... I have not log to my world for a long time. Today I logon with the new 1.7.8 and all items are gone. All chest are empty and my character has no armor and no items.... Is there anything I can do? or is it all gone forever?
The problem is when you upgrade to a new version, play on the new version on a world, then downgrade and play on the same world. the version.jar reinstalls and over rights the variables used as storage. so all objects that hold items like item frames and chests get wiped, this also causes signs to include quotation marks and paste null where ever there is an empty line.
i just had an odd experiance similar to this. i was looking through an empty chest and suddenly music discs started to just appear inside it. When I took them out and went to put them back into my chest specifically for music discs they would dispensary seconds after putting them in. i tried to put in other things and the same thing happened. things just keep disapearing right in front of my eyes
