    Yes. Most smartphones have both a MicroSD slot and internal storage, both of which you would need to overwrite completely before selling it unless you're okay with a stranger having access to your personal data.

    Seriously, you are so stupid. I said how, because I never saw anybody do that. Of course I know it was an accident

    If you went to System Settings → Other Settings → Format System Memory, you can't recover the Nintendo 3DS folder as this permanently deletes the data off the SD card.

    However, if you deleted that folder from a computer, try using a data recovery program.
    • List of data recovery program
    • Go with EaseUS for first pick.
    • Get the paid/Pro version; find a cracked version on your own if you can't buy it..

    Encouraging piracy is against forum rules.

    How is that any different from saying to someone to go to "thst iso site" or anything else. Its within terms unless he outright says where and how to get it.

    We're missing a bit of critical information -
    What guide are you following? I'm guessing 3ds.hacks.guide, but if so, what firmware version are you hacking and what method?
    If not, it would be great if you could link to the guide.

    It's possible you don't have to worry. Don't take my word for it, but you may be able to reinsert the SD into your 3ds, which will result in a new 'Nintendo 3ds' folder being created on the SD card. Keep in mind that depending on what state your console is in and how far you are through the guide, this may not work.

    Alternately, use a file recovery program. As long as you haven't written to the SD card since, the files are still there. All that is deleted when you delete a file is a snippet of information that there is a file stored at X location, X format, etc. The files are still there, you just need to find a way to restore the pointers.

    Oops:)
    I didn't look at the origin date, just the date of the last post. My mistake.
