    The micro sd probably corrupted.

    Next time backup your saves.

    what cart were you using?

    did your sd card corrupt fully (as in all the files) or are the game files fine (and not the save files alone)?

    how are we supposed to help if you don't give us more info?

    Well actually they were all in the same folder so probably the backups would be deleted to. Im using R4 v1.18 Kernel and just the games and saves were deleted but im not sure if i put backups in that file would be deleted.

    I believe holaitsme's recommendation was for you to regularly dump backups of your saved games on your computer. (perhaps once a week or so) Flash memory is fairly stable, but corruption happens, yanno.

    I know it sucks. The same thing happened to me in the middle of Luminous Arc.

    >.< Sorry to hear that.
    But, if you learn from your mistake, and it's not a total loss.

    We all tend to shorten what we say, after we've been here a while.
    Now you know what we mean by "backup".
    Just like, when we say to "format" the micro SD card, we usually don't mean to use the Windows built-in formatter. Rather, most people recommend a program called "Panasonic SDFormatter" or another similar program.

    Welcome to tha 'Temp.
