    First things first: Does Vita Save Manager let you backup games ONLY from Mai/Vitamin dumps? I've tried it on the two physical games I own (Final Fantasy X HD, and Metal Gear Solid HD) and keep getting the "Cannot find eject data" error. When i google: vita save manager "cannot find eject data" - ZERO results show up... It seems to be able to backup the saves for two MaiDump games I have installed (of games I own the digital download rights for), so maybe this ONLY works for MaiDump or Vitamin games?

    For the process I've tried, I tried the 9 step directions from Hackinformer and they don't work. So I tried YouTube, and there's only 1 single (English) video on there from 3 months ago (which things may have changed since then - I'm using the most recent version from GitHub). So I'm following that video to the "T" and it isn't working for those two games I physically own. Here's the notes I took from watching that video like 10 times...they show how to backup a save game (haven't gotten to try the restoring that backup quite yet...since I can't even get this to work).

    TO BACKUP SAVE DATA

    Start Save Manager
    X to select game
    X to confirm “Start save dumper” (quickly loads up game, then switches back to Save Manager)
    X on Slot 0
    Hit X for backup (to export save games to Slot 0)
    O to close window
    O again to exit Save Manager
    (it then exits Save Manager, but then Save Manager pops back up - hit O to exit again)
    Peel corner down to quit Save Manager, do the same for the game, then launch the game)
    "Cannot find eject data" error, then after I hit X it automatically boots back into Save Manager...


    P.S. A fix I found online says to go into ux0:Patch/ directory and delete the folder without _orig at the end, and then take the _orig out of the other folder. This doesn't work.

    Yet another fix says to go to ux0:app/ and do the same deleting/renaming of the .orig eboot files there....but these games (being physical official games I bought on Sony memory 'cartridges' I assume) don't seem to have anything stored in ux0:app/ ....which also leaves me to believe that you can't use Save Manager to backup saves from actual physical games.


    ***EDIT*** This seems to be ONLY an issue with the nightly from 2/8/2017. Stable version 0.8.0 seems to work fine.

    Do you have unsafe homebrew enabled?
    Last time I used it taihen didn't exist and this was for my bought game Digimon Cyber Sleuth, so maybe this could work.

    Somebody actually wrote me back last night on their GitHub. This seems to be ONLY an issue with the nightly from 2/8/2017. Stable version 0.8.0 seems to work fine. Thank you for the reply though.

    And while I'm posting, if it'll help anybody out, here's the quite simple directions (my notes) on how to restore a save game you backed up:


    TO BACKUP SAVE DATA
    -Start Save Manager
    -X to select game
    -X to confirm “Start save dumper” (quickly loads up game, then switches back to Save Manager)
    -X on Slot 0
    -Hit X for Export (to export save games to Slot 0)
    -O to close window
    -O again to exit Save Manager
    -it then exits Save Manager, but then Save Manager pops back up - hit O to exit again
    -Peel corner down to quit Save Manager, do the same for the game, then launch the game
