    The similar thing happened to my daughter, she lost her world in Minecraft Education, but she uses a Chromebook and I don't know where to look for the MinecraftPE folder since it's very different from my laptop.  Any chance you can help?

    On my Acer Laptop/Chromebook instead of pressing esc I pressed the snooze button. I then turned my laptop on again and my world was lost and I do not know where it is or whether I can even find it. Is there a way to get my world back?

    I made a world a couple of hours ago on my Chromebook and I went on to another site and didn't save it. I checked the history and tried deleting the game and re-installing it but non worked, Is there a way to get it back?

    Yuzhang HUANG, unfortunately if you've deleted it there's no way to restore it through Minecraft. 

    You'd need to use some sort of data recovery tool.

    It is a good Idea to backup your world files every so often.  Here is where to find the files

    Unfortunately, if you deleted a world without backing it up, there is likely no way to restore it from minecraft.  Perhaps with some sort of file recovery tool but I don't know much about that.

    It may be worth while to include your minecraft world files into your automatic backups of your computer if you do that sort of thing.  For instance, you can probably include your worlds folder in your Onedrive backup.
