    OK, here's my problem:
    Recently I just did a System Transfer between 2 3DSs. And, I thought it would combine the source's games and stuff into the target console, but it turns out it overwrote EVERYTHING with the source's system on my target system (idiot me...). I can redownload everything back, but I want to restore the save files. I don't really wanna do everything from scratch, especially my retail game downloads (I had 90 hours on Pokémon X, so yeah...).
    Is there anyway to restore it? I have backup files in my PC that I just did before the system transfer.
    I tried moving save files that are from the same game from the PC to the system (I did it with Pokémon X for a test), but it ended up saying the save file was corrupted...
    So...any ideas?
    If there isn't a way, oh well, it would be fun trying to do everything I guess...
    Thanks! :)

    That's lame. Nintendo really should've set it up as a merge rather than an overwrite.

    when you system transferred, did you leave the SD card inside the source 3ds until it was fully transferred to target 3ds? if so, all you had to do was put the SD card from source 3ds to target 3ds and save files should work fine.
