    After leaving the app it gets stuck in the "Closing software..." screen

    Also, pressing start froze the app for me.

    the same here the 2.0.1 app (the first i checked) is very slow and when trying to leave to home it stuck closing the app for maybe 30s

    so better interrupting the app would be nice and a progress bar for time consuming tasks

    Did you read the readme? First launch is slow because of the working path being created. Next boots are a lot faster, instead. Also, you probably closed the app when it was still fetching your titles to create the working path, so I wouldn't be surprised if it got stuck for you.

    The second time it did boot a lot faster but the same still happened to me. I waited a while and nothing more was popping up, and the titles seemed to all be there. If there was still a title being fetched in the background, then in that case a progress bar would have helped, like FunThomas said.

    yeah sure i did not read the manual and tried to kill the app but a progress bar like in JKSM would help clarify the difference between what you see and what is done
    but in a loop where some more things are done maybe its a good idea to give time to other processes after some steps that the 3ds can still do other things or kill it earlier
    when checking my games in JKSM i get a progress bar and it works faster so i did not know what was wrong

    or better let the user select to start fetching the titles on 3ds then he knows it could take longer

    Looks like a nice Piece of Software. While i will use it, this brings me to a question to the community, since i'm kind of new to 3DS Homebrew.
    My Question is at most tightly coupled to the Topic: Is there a "comfortable" way to transfer the backuped Files to the PC - !without the need for removing the SD-Card from the 3DS! ?
    Something like a Homebrew App for Wireless Transmission or Cloud Upload?
    Because, like you all know, it's just a real Pain to remove and reinsert the SD-Card from a New 3DS XL...
    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you FunThomas. That did the Job. FTP-Server (ftpd) + FileZilla works just fine. :yaynds:

    But i encountered an issue with Checkpoint. I tried it with Monster Hunter Stories (Cartridge-Game, that stores its Save in extdata on the SD-Card). The Backuping works perfect, but when i restore a Save it immediately shows the message "restored successfully" but hasn't done anything. I managed to restore a Save, using JKSM, that was backuped with Checkpoint. Thus i can say, that the Backuping works, but the restore feature doesn't do anything.

    Request: be able to read saves from a JKSV folder (since JKSM doesn't work on Rosalina).

    Have you seen Phalk's fork of JKSM? It works on Rosalina.

    Is this a real time ram backup/restore app? Cause that would be pimp and the name gives that impression. Or is it just a "yet another" save manager app?
