I bought a new laptop for my son and deleted his user account on my laptop. I didnt realise his minecraft worlds wouldnt carry over to his new laptop when we downloaded minecraft so he's lost all his worlds. Unfortunately I didnt have file history switched on. Is there any way to either reactivate his user account or retrieve his lost worlds? Thanks in advance.

File History does not store those kind of files. It only stores profile items. The only hope that you have with any kind of recovery tool. Is if you have not used your computer at all, since making the mistake.

Try a recovery tool like: Wise Data Recovery Portable | PortableApps.com

Put it on your USB, so it would not overwrite any files and try to recover them on USB as well.

Search in this location: C:\Users\DeletedUserNameProfile\AppData\.minecraft
