    If nands are unlinked can I use data management to delete GBA VC injects w/o the system deleting everything?

    No, dont click on the data management setting at all. I assumed that if you entered data management and clicked on the save data tab it would delete it, but going into data management does erase everything. Make sure to make back ups of your nand and emunand every so often

    Going into Data Management always worked fine for me once I unlinked NANDs. It's how I delete ally my apps/games still because I haven't learned how to do that with FBI or BBM and I prefer to do things the official way when possible.

    You can only enter data management on emuNAND. Entering it on sysNAND will drop a nuke on your sd card.

    That is only true if your nands are linked. If your nands are unlinked then you are free to enter and use data management on sysnand freely without anything bad happening.

    weird, I accessed the data management on my sysNAND to check some apps and my SD card still works fine.

    Data management on emuNAND is always safe.
    Data management on unlinked sysNAND is safe.
    Data management on linked sysNAND will screw things up; don't do it.

    What happens exactly? Does it wipe your SD card or something?
