    How to get your /2fa recovery codes from your logs folder

    I've seen many people having trouble trying to find their recovery codes after not keeping them in a safe place and losing their device. There are many ways to retrieve your codes, but this is the best in my opinion.

    NOTE: If you've reset your computer since setting up your /2fa OR deleted your .minecraft folder, then this method will not work for you. Your only other option is to go through your Recycle Bin and hope your old .minecraft is there.

    Before we get started, here are a few programs which you will need to open your logs, you can uninstall them afterwards if you care that much:

    WinRAR (or anything which extracts files from a compressed file type, WinZip, etc.)
    Notepad++ (this will save you a lot of time instead of having to search through each individual file.)​

    1. Press the WINDOWS+R key stroke to open your Run line.

    2. In the search box, type %appdata% then press OK.

    3. Then, open your .minecraft folder.

    4. Now inside your .minecraft folder, you will find your logs folder, open it.

    5. These are all of your logs. Give em' a wave. *waves*

    6. Select all the archives; make sure you do NOT select any other file type.

    7. Now RIGHT-CLICK on the highlighted archives and click Extract files... then press OK. It should create another logs folder inside your logs folder. Now open the new folder. All the files inside of it will be Text Documents.

    8. Select ALL the Text Documents inside the new logs folder, then RIGHT-CLICK and select Edit with Notepad++

    9. Next, press CTRL+F to open the Find menu. Then type LOCKED FOREVER (make sure this is spelt correctly) and then press the Find All in All Opened Documents button on the right of the Find menu.

    10. Now DOUBLE-CLICK the 'hit' inside your Find result at the bottom and it will take you directly to your /2fa recovery codes.

    Okay, you should have found it. If you need further assistance, you can post a Support Ticket at: https://forum.cosmicpvp.com/support-tickets/open
