    My google-fu has failed me: I have three officially bought PS1 games on my Vita. Is there an easier method to back up their save data if I'm running Henkaku and have access to the file system??

    I can backup the ENTIRE game (with the save games) to my PS3 I think (which is fine), but would rather have my saves backed up to my actual computer (my PS3 likes to overheat) – similar to how I use Vita Save Manager to backup my Vita games. If there is an easier method, is there any trick to putting the saves back onto the Vita?

    I forgot
    Yep, just open up VitaShell, navigate to ux0:\pspemu\PSP\SAVEDATA, then find the game ID of the save you want to backup and transfer that to your PC. To restore it, just put it back and overwrite.
