if you your saved Minecraft game states and worlds on your Android mobile device to extract and save them safely or transfer them to another device, you can follow the steps below to find the data easily. These instructions are only for Android as they are stored in a different location on the PC or other devices.

How to find your saved games and worlds (Android)

Let’s do it step by step because it can be a bit tricky. The first thing you need to do is open the Minecraft game and go to the Settings tab in the main menu.

Go to Minecraft SettingsGo to Minecraft Settings

From there, scroll down the left menu to Profile (or Profiles) and then scroll down the right side of the screen until you find the File Storage Location tab. Make sure “External” is checked there instead of Application to ensure your save files and worlds are stored on your phone and not in the game itself.

If you did that, you must have a file explorer installed on your Android phone, e.g. B. the ES File Explorer.

Once you have that, launch the application and follow the path below to find the game and its files:

Keep in mind that this path may vary depending on whether you’re using an SD card for storage or internal storage. However, you can usually find them by following the path “X/Games/com.mojang/minecraftWorlds/” where X is the SD, the internal storage or the location where the files were saved respectively. An app like Files, which we used as an example for this article, can make this a lot easier.
