Hello! I have a couple of games that I'm playing on usb loader gx using my usb stick. But I'm worried that my usb could give out in the future, so can i just copy and paste all my usb folders onto my pc every once a while? Would this save all the game data if I did? After doing this I'm assuming I could just put those files on any usb and it should work perfectly. But I just need clarification, thanks!

Emunand saves? Is that a homebrew application I can download haha, sorry i'm still kinda new. But thank you so much for answering my questions, you've really helped me alot!
yes, but use emunand saves as partial along with creating an emunand. that will save to the usb instead of internal memory. then, it's just as easy as copy and paste.

no, you can build an emunand through usb loader gx. it's in the features section iirc. it will backup current saves, so you don't have to worry about that. then, for emunand saves set it to partial, so that it backs up to the emunand. you'll also have to set the emunand path in settings. all of this, including installing wad files if you choose to, can be done through usb loader gx, so there's no need to use anything else. I rarely use any other homebrew, since usb loader gx pretty much can do most things. it can even load homebrew if you want.
