    If all you're looking for is the shin megami tensei save, you could try looking at the created date on all the files, and since SMT only came out last week, it should significantly narrow it down.

    well, yes they all would be last modified today, but are they all listed as being created today too? (the recovered files on your cart, not anything you have copied to HD.)

    Edit: Failing that, the only other option I see is trial and error. try them one at a time and see which one loads

    Trial and Error would take too long since he has more than 100 savs.
    But yeah,checking the 'Created On' data is the best idea.

    It turns out that SPSS opens the file but nothing is inside it [​IMG]
