    If you installed a9lh already then just download the luma CFW and put it on the root of sd, then load the system :P

    In the Nintendo 3DS folder.

    You could also back them up with JKSV.

    What saves? You said is deleted, by the antivirus. Also if you wanna back up saves, use jksavemanager, the 3DS saves are encrypted with the systemn you use it on, the save manager removes the restrictions.

    make sure you copied hourglass9.bin to the /luma/payloads folder and rename it to start_hourglass9.bin

    Y'know, I've been thinking about writing a "recovery" tutorial for if an SD Card ever accidentally gets wiped. It's not that difficult, but having all of the information/files in one place might be useful. What do you guys think?

    I think that would actually be super-helpful for many people, especially with A9LH in its current "If it's not in place you can't even boot your 3DS" state.

    I just came here to ask, how is it possible to get ''a virus'' that deletes your whole sd card partition?
    How?

    i was thinking the same thing. i was going to suggest using a recovery program, however they said their problem has been solved.

    Normally a virus doesn't delete data off An SD, that's Just not how a virus works. A virus infects and copies itself in other files the system itself uses and starts causing harm from inside Windows or whatever you use. I think he did it himself and then blamed it on a virus. Great story bro

    There are programs to recover data off drives, if it's been deleted but not yet saved over.

    True back in the day Motherboard manufacturers didn't implement protection so you had a couple of virusses that altered your bios and chipset.
