World files disappearing

    Hi Jennifer, 

    Typically if worlds are disappearing, it means the local storage on the devices is being regularly wiped. 

    We did this at the board I used to work at, specifically with chromebooks because otherwise the local storage would fill up and brick the devices. 

    I always encourage students to get into the habit of exporting and backing up their worlds after each build session regardless... files can become corrupt, devices can be damaged, or unintended in game actions can occur (I had a student that had used TNT blocks in a build in a 3 month long project... the weather was on and the structure got hit by lightening and poof... gone in an instant. Luckily she'd exported regularly, so no time lost, and one very relieved student). So there's definite benefits to getting them used to the process. 

    If it's helpful, I have videos on my YouTube channel on how to export/import from PC, Chromebook and iPads, here
