    I've got a bunch of games installed on my 3DS and I want to backup my saves. there have been a couple of homebrew apps popping up here and there, but I don't really know which one to use. Preferably I'd like one that could do bulk backups and that has a cia version, but those are optional.
    So far I've found svdt and JK's Save Manager. Are there any other backup utilities that I'm missing.

    Nintendo's SaveDataFiler is probably the easiest to use in a semi-bulk way (select app, press Y then A, repeat), but apart from that it's not very user friendly, between engrish and naming folders with the "unique id" (a substring of the title ID), so you would need a table (like 3dsdb.com) to figure out what you're actually selecting!

    Used JK's save manager, works fine, but can't do backups in bulk. I'll try one of the others the next time
