    I'm new to the 3ds scene so I'm wondering if there is a way to back up a save file so I dont have to worry of losing them.

    Theres a tool on the eShop for copying your saves onto the SD card. Not sure if it works in reverse tho..

    I think the r4i guys made a save dongle for 3ds game cards specifically for backing up saves

    Yeah as Yamagushi said, There is a new save tool on eshop I downloaded it tonight but havn't got chance to try it yet as my GF has not come off Ocarina 3D ALL NIGHT!! It does copy the save off the cartridge and onto SD though.
