    Usually the backups are located in your .minecraft folder, then in the "backups" folder, and from there, there should be a folder with the same name as the world you want to restore. In that folder, you'll have to go through more folders: if your world was backed up on 9/10/2014, for example, you would go into the "2014" folder, then "9", then "10"; inside that folder is one or more zip files, which are your compressed world saves. Just open up whichever tickles your fancy and (making sure to delete the old world save first!) extract the world save from the zip file into your "saves" folder in .minecraft.
    ... at least, this is how I do it. I don't think there's a command to restore backups, anyway. Manual it is. Used to this you must become.

    You can, but you need to use a rotary condensentrator to convert it from gas to fluid first

    Thank you. That's what I had tried to do but I think the bug that corrupted my world must have been in the backup as it wouldn't work. I also noted that that particular backup was a third the size of the rest so I tried again using the backup from half an hour earlier and it worked. So not too much lost. :)

    As in vanilla lakes? Or MFR lakes? Or BC oil 'lakes'... Tell us more, you must.

    But then I guess i'd need to turn it back into gas the other side of the tesseract so I can pipe it into my Injector.

    Would there be a machine that accomplishes such a task?

    brine can be moved no prob thru a tesseract, I don't know about HCl, I don't think it's a fluid in the forge sense of the word

    But it's a circular room, I'd go with pizza

    The contrast would look pretty good if he used some different blocks in a square pattern...

    Good to hear you got it fixed! Protip: you can type "/backup" and that'll automatically start a backup as soon as you want it; this is especially useful before you try anything potentially... gamebreaking.
    Vanilla lakes. I want to disable vanilla water lake generation (although if all lake generation went away, that's okay as well) so that my world doesn't have 30827549 pools of water within a 8000x8000 area. For one thing, it just looks ugly. For another, lakes often replace parts of trees, making it look ugly-er. Finally, who really needs all that water anyway? It'd also be much easier to build if I didn't have to fill in lakes all the time.

    IIRC there's a mod for that, but not in any FTB packs. I've used something that could control all aspects of vanilla terrain generation before, but was 1.5 I think, maybe even 1.3 :S

    In 1.8, you can customize Vanilla worlds, as to remove the lakes.
