    TUTORIAL FOR ANYONE WHO CANNOT CONVERT MAP WITHOUT ERROR!

    BACKUP YOUR MAP FIRST - Please!

    1. open command prompt (start>run>cmd)

    2. locate your server map file where the region files are saved in your cmd promt for example..
    cd\
    cd serverfoldername
    cd mapnamefolder
    cd regions

    3. now type

    dir /s /p *.mc* | sort | more

    now press any key and carefully look for the last file to be converted from mcr to mca and look for where the MCA files stop showing up. Make a mental note of the filename AFTER the last mca file showing up and rename it or delete it

    for example you will see something like this:-

    r.245.444.mcr
    r.245.444.mca
    r245.448.mcr
    r245.448.mca
    r246-449.mcr <-------- this is the culprit of your problem, RENAME or DELETE
    r247-442.mcr
    r247.449.mcr

    Please understand that deleting the culprit file WILL fix your map convertion but it will be re-generated therefore you could possibly lose a few chunks.

    If the first convertion does not work, follow the step again until fully converted. then go access the damage.

    Let me know how you get on folks!​
