Formated hard-drive and I lost my custom maps

Posts: 29
I formatted my hard-drive, because of this I lost all of my maps from my computer. I know I should have backed them up, but I did not think of them. Is there any way to get them back after doing this. I really want them. :D

uhh are they published as unlocked? if not, then NOPE.

Heres a hint, always publish 2 versions of your map, 1. A locked Public Version
2. A private Unlocked Version with a different name.

Alright, assuming they are unlocked. How would I access them?

Go into the editor,

File> Manage Published

Then just sign in, click the map you want and hit open in editor, then just save it to wherever.

God damnit, I wish there was a way to change the release to public. Crap. Oh well, I can make new maps now.

I think the reason for that is to avoid someone else that could log on your account, steal your protected map that way.

I know it's the same broken record but get in habit to backup your stuff to other drives even if it's occasionally at least.
