    Today I renamed the NDS folder (with all the games and .sav's in it) on my microSD with DSOrganize, and right afterwards that folder couldn't be found anymore.
    Nothing displays that folder, although Windows still shows me its size when I remove everything else from the card and select the card's properties.
    Does anyone know what I could do? Is there a way to insert the folder again into the file system?

    Btw, I'm using a 1 GB SanDisk microSD and a SuperCard Lite.

    you might have hidden it, make sure that in tools > folder options, that "View Hidden Files" is selected

    Try browsing the microSD by using Command Prompt with 'dir' command. If you find the folder, try to rename it by using this command: ren

    That didn't work either... It seems that somehow DSOrganize removed the folder from the file table [​IMG]
    Next time I'll back up my saves [​IMG]

    Connect the microSD card to the computer, right click on it in Windows Explorer/My Computer, click Properties, then the Tools tab. Click the Check Now button under the Error Checking section, and see if that can fix it.

    That helped. It created a directory with files in it - called "FILExxxx.CHK".
    By the sizes they look like the files I am looking for [​IMG]
    Now i'll just have to find the right save for the right game and see if I get it back to normal.
    Thanks for the tip [​IMG]
