the other day i decided to redo my computer and after i re downloaded and wanted to play terraria, but none of my players or worlds/maps are showing up. understand i'm somebody that backs up my saves like crazy so i have 6 folders of past saves of everything. so plr and plr.bak files i have and the world ones .bak. but the game won't load or read them, is it because my files are from version 3.0? and not 3.4? i really need help.. also when i make a few player the save doesn't even show up in the place it should and i can't find it.

You mind showing us a screenshot of the contents of your world and player folders?

If your saves doesn't show in the /Documents/My Games/Terraria folder, then cloud-saves might be turned on. I suggest you turn it off as it's known to cause issues.

EDIT
From the screen-shots, it looks like you do use cloud-saves.

From your latest screenshot, you have put the Players/Worlds folders directly in your Steam/common/Terraria folder.
Either put them in /Steam/common/Terraria/Terraria save (if you want to use cloud) or in /Documents/My Games/Terraria.

alright the my games worked. i didn't have a save game folder. sorry i got snappy. i just got mad because i didn't want to lose anything
 
I recently got a new computer, and was transfering my player files (through dropbox) to my new pc, even after trying the modloader files (I use modloader) terraria is not showing ANY of my player files, and they were both on the same terraria version, I really want my players back, I had a survival world that was really cool, and i dont want to lose it

I've been doing all these and all that has managed to work was my damn worlds. At least I have my worlds back but I really wish I had my characters back as well. This sucks.
