    How do you backup all titles in bulk?

    I held Y to multi-select everything, but I don't see a way to trigger a "save all"

    May I get some assistance to a problem i am having using Checkpoint?
    I am on Luma3DS 8.1 cfw and installed the cia variant of Checkpoint via FBI successfully. Loaded into Checkpoint and it managed to scan my SD card for several games worth of saves, however, not all the games I played and saved on this SD card were on the list.
    Also, i noticed the saves were for games I played on an older version of Luma3DS (6.6 or earlier, i think) and i recently updated it to 8.1 before starting a save for Monster Hunter XX, all on the same SD card and not formatted at all.
    It is MHXX that failed to show up on the list in Checkpoint.

    Any clues as to why this is happening? I wanted to extract the MHXX save file.

    Thanks in advance!


    Edit: Found out MHXX saves in ExtData, and there was a X button toggle in Checkpoint to toggle into ExtData view and voila! MHXX was sitting right there, as it should be.

    Hi!

    I'm finishing my 3DS setup and I am missing a decent save manager.
    I heard about Checkpoint and JKSM.
    I think JKSM is obsolete and Checkpoint is much more intuitive.
    But before install it, I would like to be sure it has the option to delete save files, because this is the main option I'm looking for.
    I didn't see it on the videos I watched. But JKSM seems to have this option.

    Was this implemented yet on Checkpoint?

    Thanks

    It doesn't delete save files yet

    Are you trying to delete your save files that you backed up, or delete the saves that are already in place for the games?

    Checkpoint allows you to backup and restore saves from games. It doesn't delete the backed up saves; you have to manually delete them by going into the 3ds/Checkpoint folder found on your SD card. I don't think it delete the saves currently linked to the games either.

    Edit - You can delete backed up saves in Checkpoint by selecting them and pressing (X).

    Wrong. It can delete save backups, but not the whole save partition inside the console, if that's what they mean.

    Thanks for the correction. I don't use Checkpoint that often, but you're right.

    Select the save file and press (X) to bring up Delete selected backup?

    Im confused!
    I just want to delete the game saves on the console because the official data manager of 3DS only lets you delete the game and the save at once. Not individually.
    I mean delete the game saves, so you can run one game like it was the first time booting.
    Checkpoint don't have this option, right?

    It doesn't. Also because that's a feature that all the games have inside natively

    S, you mean there is an option somewhere to delete the save game file on the Nand, inside every game?? How??
    I can only see that some games usually have 3 save slots and we can save, delete and copy between them. But deleting this slots actually did NOT delete the save file on the Nand.

    I found some kind of combo keys to delete the game save, but they are different for every game. I don't know if all games include this feature and if this really deletes the, file on the nand - what I really would like to do..

    Can the author implement this function on a future revision? Please.
    Thank you
