Backups Mod (Backup, Restore your entire World)

Backups Mod 1.12.2/1.8.9 will automatically backup your entire world every 15 minutes (configurable) and stores your backups in a format that takes up very little disk space. To avoid taking up all disk space, copies will be automatically compressed and the oldest copies will be deleted.

To manage all backups you will be available to a special interface, so you will always know what version of the worlds you have at the moment. With the backups GUI, you can easily restore a world from ingame or restore parts of your world with the /restore command.

Backups Mod


  • Automatic Backups – Your world is automatically backed up every 15 minutes. You can also start a backup yourself with the /backup command. The automatic backup intreval can be changed in the config file.
  • Backups GUI – Clicking on the backups button (which replaces the re-create button, if you hold Alt/Option then the backups button will turn back into the re-create button) when you have a world selected will display the backups GUI, which has a list of all backups for that world. The storage size and reason the backup was created are displayed below each backup, and the total storage size is displayed in the top-right.
  • Button Key:
    • Restore – Creates a backup of the world and then restores the world from the selected backup.
    • Enter Backup – Loads the selected backup as if it was a world. Anything you do while inside the backup isn’t saved.
    • Set Label – Allows you to set a label for the selected backup. Labeled backups won’t be trimmed.
    • Clear Label – Clears the label from the selected backup.
    • Delete – Deletes the selected backups.
  • Backup Trimming – Old backups are automatically deleted based on the following rules:
    • If a backup is older than a hour, only one backup per hour is kept.
    • If a backup is older than three days, only one backup per day is kept.
    • If a backup is older than a month, only one backup per week is kept.

    Backup trimming can be configured or disabled in the config file.

  • Backup Format – Backups are incremental, which means each backup only contains the data that has changed since the last backup. This greatly decreases the amount of disk space backups take up. Backups are also compressed, which decreases disk size even futher.
