Do you know where your .minecraft folder is? It should be in there.

Else:

1. Start up 'Run'

2. Type in '%appdata% and find .minecraft

Here's an image where it should be:

cant wait to see it updated and working :P

Features i think it should have:

Ability to see backups in a small window

Backups are kept in backups folder, but then in folders again with the date and time (compressed folders maybe?)

Be able to restore specific items from the backups, such as restoring screenshots from such 'n' such a date

Ability to see backups in a small window - What do you mean by this?

Backups are kept in backups folder, but then in folders again with the date and time (compressed folders maybe?) - I also had this idea in mind; just didn't think of having it in compressed folders, but this would be a great idea!

Be able to restore specific items from the backups, such as restoring screenshots from such 'n' such a date - So you're saying the program should let you restore specific files, not just folders?

I did think of that, but it would take an awful lot of time to find it :P

Why is this? This is because the interface that opens up looks really bad and I couldn't even find that folder myself.

Actually, never mind what I said.

The 'select directory' dialog looks fine. I think it depends on what OS you build it on. The example that I was looking at must've been built on XP because the interface looked really bad; not saying that XP looks bad.

Or it could be the version of Delphi the person used.
