Answer from: Andrewq
Oh wow i just found out how, just go I. Iexplorer and the Minecraft pe worlds will show 2 world files. 1 will be empty and another will be full. Transfer all the worlds from the full one to the empty one. Right click export to folder right click on empty world folder, add folder, right click new folder add files, then drag your exported chunks level, and all that data repeat with all worlds. Same feature can be used for custom maps!

There I was playing my game just then my. iPod screen went completely blank. So I turned it back on but my minecraft boat had dissapeared into nothing. I checked if my boat hadnt sank but it didn't.so then I suggested that I should wright my story. But enyway that boat was a jinormus crew ship. So I'm really angry aboat that. So I hope someone finds a cure.
Answer from: Minecraftaddict
There's no cure but I'm sure if you buy it you can save it, I have the lite addition and I have it o. My ipad and iPhone but its constantly deleting itself. Be careful of the following (may only occur to me)Switching off your phone, Phone running out of charge. Not going on for a while and loosing its memory. Letting the screen lock, always check or if you look away click the home button to prevent this

Minecraft backs up to the iCloud. I restored my entire iPad from the iCloud and used the backup from a couple days ago. The Minecraft world was restored! My 8 year old son was devastated after building it for 7 months, then accidentally deleting it. I am a hero in our household right now. Go to your settings, click on iCloud, click manage storage, click the iPad listed there, it will list all the apps that backup to the iCloud. Make sure Minecraft is turned on. Mine was, and I never intentionally set it that way, so yours may be automatically on as well. Once that is confirmed, go to the "reset" section of your settings, and select the one that says erase all content and settings. It will ask you several times, say yes. Once it is wiped clean, it will ask if you want to restore from iTunes or ICloud backup. Select ICloud. It will first restore the settings, then will ask for your passwords. Once that begins it will take a little time to restore everything. Your Minecraft world should be there again. Then you can dance around your house like the Rock Star superhero you are for saving an imaginary world. Good luck!
