    Basically, I'm trying to back-up all my 3DS games with FBI, and, well, I don't have enough space on my 16gb sd card to save them all.

    Is it possible to install .cias with FBI to somewhere other than my sd card?
    Maybe my NAND or my system?

    Nope, FBI automatically detect where to install a CIAS automatically, so games and homebrews will be always installed on the SD and System Apps in the NAND. But even though you could install a game on your NAND would be useless since 3DS has very little space on the NAND

    Small games could be installed on the NAND if you fiddled with their Title IDs, but that would break any ID based interoperability with other programs, such as Pokémon Bank.

    You can try backing up the save then restoring it on another homebrew'd system with a save manager. If that's what you're after. This'll save your backups onto a file on the root of your SD.

    The real FBI (ie, not FBI 2) has a manual sd/nand selection :)
    but, regardless of titleid (which is used by autodetecting title managers), the media type in the exheader must be changed from SD to slot1/nand

    Have you considered a bigger SD card?

    Welp, rip. Can't backup everything xD, I looked at some 64gb sd cards, but they're like $50, I'm not paying that much for just backups :P.
    Anyways, thanks for the replies, I searched the web for like a hour trying to find a solution to this xd, I'm just going to have to deal with only a few backups :c.
