What system are you using?

PC:

1. go to my computer
2. Documents and settings
3. Your user name
4. Application settings
5. Minecraft
6. Saves - Should be folders corresponding to the world you are in

Copy the savegame onto a portable memory device and insert in the same folder

MAC:

1. Go to computer - hard drive
2. Username then library
3. Application support
4. Minecraft
5. Saves - same again^

Hope I helped!

Super easy, just find where you installed it, find the folder 'save' and back it up.
Which operating system do you use?

Put it on a USB drive. Find your world then copy the whole thing into the USB drive, then when you want to put it on another computer, just open up the "worlds" folder and replace one of the empty worlds with it. (example, if your world is world 1, you would delete world 1 on the other computer and paste your own world 1 in its place)

Yeah, Minecraft keeps all of the good stuff in a hidden folder called "roaming." You can find it by searching your machine for "%appdata%"

The first result is usually the roaming folder.
