Locating your Minecraft folder and files

Using The Resource Pack folder (Recommended)

Minecraft

STICKY NOTE

This method is recommended because it will work with any version of Minecraft. Everything from modded to vanilla.

Create a “Copy Path” Service for the Right-Click Menu. If you find yourself frequently needing to copy and paste file and folder paths, creating an Automator Service will make your life easier because the service then becomes accessible from the OS X Right-Click contextual menu, accessible from anywhere in the Finder. On my Mac System.Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData (C#) returns /Users/USERNAME/.config, which (probably as a result) is also a folder that is used by some applications. – Joost Huizinga Jan 31 '18 at 5:38.

Minecraft folder structure

Crash Reports

  • Crash reports are used to help find the reason the game crashed as well as providing details on which mods are or are not working.
  • Within the Minecraft root directory, they are found in a folder called crash_reports.
    If you do not see this folder then you most likely, have not had a crash yet.

Logs

  • Log files are a record of everything that has happened during loading of the modpack as well as tracking all activity ingame.
  • They can be used to locate a specific time, location and cause of crashes and other problems.
  • Within the Minecraft root directory, they are found in a folder called logs.
  • Scroll down the list of logs and find latest to obtain the most recent information.

Singleplayer Saves

  • Saves contain all information about a world and dimensions in a game.
  • Within the Minecraft root directory, they are found in a folder called saves. This folder does not contain any world data for servers.
  • This folder does not exist on a server.
  • If you want to find similar information on a server use the world folder as detailed below.

World Files

Mac Path For Minecraft Mod

  • World folders contain all the information about a world both on single player and servers.
  • On single player they can be found by first opening the saves folder.
  • The world folders on single player and servers will have the same name as the world that you created.

Mods and Config Files

Mac Path For Minecraft 1.12.2

  • Mods for Minecraft create two folders within the root directory.
  • mods contains all the .jar files that activate and process mods in your save.
  • configs contains text files that set the functions and options of a mod.
  • The configs will always have names that relate to or match the appropriate mods. This can make them easier to find.
    On occassion a mod will create a folder in configs rather than a single file. These can be accessed and adjusted in the same way as the standard config files.

Troubleshooting

  • The biggest issue that you may come across when trying to find your Minecraft folders occurs when a custom installation path was chosen. In this case, the resource pack folder button is still effective at finding your folders for you.
  • If you have experienced a crash but no crash reports have generated then the issue may be related to Forge, JAVA, or the launcher itself. Make sure that they are all up to date and working properly.
