    Uhhhhh how is that Mojang's problem? The delete screen does say your world will be gone for a very, very long time....

    If you have Dropbox or some similar service, I suggest using it to keep backups of important worlds. I keep two at a time, deleting the older one each time I want to update. There are probably more sophisticated ways to do this, but that's my way.

    Bottom line: this is your problem, not Mojang's. Figure out ways to avoid having it happen and you'll be set.

    Edit: all of this assumes you are using Java Edition, which may not be true

    It is still possible to keep backups of your worlds, even if you're a mobile user like me.  I agree that it isn't Mojang's problem.

    I agree, as there is no trash recovery system on the Xbox or Switch. If I deleted the wrong world, I'd be upset. They should add a trash recovery system that removes deleted items after like 5 days or something.

    I think this should be emplemented because i suffered from the same thing as well. My friends and i are very sad because we spent so much time creating that world. I know its my fault but cut me some slack because humans make mistakes sometimes.
