    Hello everyone,

    I hope someone can help me here please.

    Yesterday I wanted to copy the "Nintendo 3DS" folder of my 2DS to my computer since I want to install the emunand on it, but it just stops at 2%.

    Here is the error : 0x80070022

    I have checked online and it seems my SD card is maybe corrupted and must be reformatted. I can see and open the folders with Windows and my SD card is working in my 2DS, though. My problem is I just can't copy the data.

    I purchased a lot of games on the eshop so I would like to know if there are any softwares to backup my game saves and how to find them (there are so many files in the 3DS folder") before reformatting the SD card, and then copying them to the new reformatted SD card.

    Thank you !


    PS: the game saves I want to back up are only games I bought on the eshop.

    I would recommend using a different SD card for emunand until you sort this out. try not copying that file and see if it affects any of your saves, you should be able to download any games you've purchased through eshop and it will restore the saves itself once you move them over.

    worst case scenario learn how to run linux off a USB and you will have a higher chance of copying all the corrupted and non corrupted files and see if that helps anything.

    Thank you !

    Yeah, it's what I did, I just bought a new SD card and installed the emunand on it.
    For the time being, I will use this one to play backups of games and when I finish my games I will format the SD card, and reinstalled everything.

    I don't know much about linux but I will look into it.

    Thanks :)
