    Well, I just felt the need to backup my savefiles just in case a random child decides to muck with my 3DS, presses Data Management and deletes all my installed CIA's and Savefiles........

    .... Or perhaps I would just need to grit my teeth and just image backup the whole 32GB SD....... :(

    for card 1 saves: they are located on your sd card, with the gameID as name and a .sav
    for card2 saves: they are stored in the roms
    for cia's: they are stored in the cia (although i am not sure about this)

    I only use CIA files....... So any specific directories rather than backing up the whole SD card? Backing up the whole SD card takes a while. :(

    You can use save data filer to back up decrypted CIA saves I believe. That would be the easiest thing to do. Not sure how it labels though.

    i don't think data management deletes the saves, just the games, re-install and your saves should still be there afaik

    Oh it does? That's a relief. One of my helpers has a child that could possibly get ahold of my 3DS so I'm trying to play safe rather than cry when I discover my savefile is gone...... :)

    It does. It asks you to back up saves for applicable games as well.

    That is why I suggested save data filer.

    Thanks for the tips.

    Fake Ninja Edit : Holy Macaroni this is even worse than DevMenu, no clues on what I should be looking for...... :(

    Fortunately I am only playing one game right now...... So I think I might be able to find the save I want to backup...... Thank you again...... :)

    It's meant for game developers, it's not going to be user friendly lol.
