If I format SysNand, can I still use my old backup to restore?

    Hi guys, simple question. Lets say I am on FW 9.2 on sysnand. I backup the sysnand. Then I install emunand 9.2 then format Sysnand to unlink them.

    If something goes wrong at some point down the road, can I still use that backup of sysnand to restore it via hardware mod (or perhaps at that time there will be an easier way to restore). Main question is, is backup of sysnand still good even if its been formatted on the console?
