    Hi guys,
    Sorry if this topic discussed before,so i have emunand fw 8 and was trying to close the SSB
    it hanged and forced to reset after i entered GW mode again the FW8 still exist but
    all my data been wiped out (DLC,Eshop games,MiiPlaza and more importantly updates) hopefully i could
    redownload my purchases on the new GW update.
    but my question is there a way to prevent this or making a backup of my sd card and how?
    thanks

    you should be able to redownload the updates once the GW update comes out. you can take measures against all data being wiped out by copying files from the SD to your computer periodically. if it resets, just copy the data back to the SD Card. stuff like saves, DLC, updates, and games are stored on the SD Card so copying the files from the computer should restore the deleted content.

    If you have formated emunand and download the DLC on it, don't visit the Data Settings/Management on the real nand. All data from the emunand will get lost.

    I didn't go to the real nand data settings,just entered GW mode after it crashed and that happened,in fact
    it happened twice last time on Pokemon after update (and that time wiped out the FW8.1 on emunand too)
    i was able to download the system update since it was supported by GW.
    is this a common problem?or do you think it's SD card issue?

    This doesn't sound like a common problem, at least I have never heard of it before. Maybe your SD card is failing?

    Yup, maybe!
    I have emunand since when it was announced and I've never experienced nor seen such issues.
    Also, as a best practice, I backup my SD weekly. I copy the 3DS files and my emuNAND partition. This way I don't loose saves, downloads (when eShop used to work) and my streetpass tags (in emunand).

    Cheers!

    Sorry to read that!
    You're not a noob you just don't know yet ;)
    Download this program here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/emunand-tool-release-and-support-thread.359239/

    I beta tested it when n1ghty created it. Works like a charm!

    you can update your emunand to 8.1 using the ssb rom and then you can play ssb again

    It happend to me on EmuNAND 8 and now, after downloading every possible patch from eshop I made SD image in WinDiskImager. I'm also making EmuNAND backup using Emunand Tool before and after update. Free space on HDD shrinks but not all files are usable if the update process went ok.
