MAP File Recovery

What is a .MAP file?

A MAP file is a game map created for games developed with one of the Quake engines. It is saved in a human-readable text-based format. MAP files are uncompiled but can be compiled into a .BSP binary map file for use in games such as Half-Life, Quake, Quake 2, and Quake 3.

How to recover lost .MAP files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .MAP file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .MAP file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .MAP files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.
