    Can't seem to find an answer to my question through google.

    1: Can anyone tell me where game saves are stored on the SD when installed as .cia?

    2: Would I be able to just copy these files to the computer, then restore them? Or would they be corrupt upon restore (Read something about a date / time check somewhere).

    Mainly wondering if I can make backups of my installed games saves w/o having to use savedatafiler.

    cias don't store their saves on sdcard. You'll have to use savdatafiler to backup/restore your saves. Why don't you want to use SaveDataFiler?

    look at the post below mine

    All my CIA Saves are on my SD-Card:
    F:\Nintendo 3DS\ID1\ID2\title\00040000\GAMEID\data\00000001.sav

    Thank you very much. Looks like it's just slightly more of a chore to back them up.

    Now, has anyone tried restoring these saves by copy pasting them back? :P

    It will work, don't worry :)
    Moved the saves to another 3DS (after a friend bricked his first N3DS and I moved his movable.sed to his new N3DS).
    Will work
