Gaming Is there a way to keep my game's save files protected the next time I install atmosphere?

I just installed the latest atmosphere on my switch and started playing FE 3 houses. I am new to the hacking scene and I was wondering if there's a way to have my save files of the game backed up in case something happens? Where are the save files kept? Also can anyone tell me if I'll lose progress in the game/or the game gets a "corrupted data" if I update atmosphere in the future???

I see but do you know the exact location on the SD the game's data/save files are stored? Can't I just back those specific files instead of backing everything up is that possible?

Checkpoint is the safest option, since the saves are decrypted and can always be restored, even on a different Switch.

You can also use Checkpoint to backup all of your saves at once.

Save files are not stored on the sd card, so no, saves will not be lost if something goes wrong with it.

If you use checkpoint all the saves will be located in the checkpoint folder. You can just mass dump them.
