Game Progress Persists
In cases where your game’s progression is persistent, the cause likely originated from deleting the wrong files. This may happen if you use server profiles on the panel, so make sure you’re enabling the correct one. However, you may have had the server/game online while removing the files. Ensure everything gets shut down properly before deleting any progress. Otherwise, the removal process for the folders could have failed. In this particular scenario, having administrative computer privileges or an external FTP program will resolve the issue for both singleplayer and the server.
Unable to Find Folders
If you’re unable to locate any of the Saved folders and files, then it can be possible you don’t have any stored game progression. This occurs when you’ve already deleted the save or an unforeseen server-related problem arose. Since there is no data, you can simply generate a new world to begin playing with a fresh start. However, if you confirm the save appears in-game, then make sure you’re using the right server profile to delete it. Otherwise, you may want to try using the Automatic Method instead of the manual variant to delete the progression.
