    In JKSV, go to device saves (not a user) and Animal Crossing. Are there any backups listed there to be restored?

    just the one that i had thought i had created, which turned out to be a 1kb passphrase.bin file.

    i definitely go into the device saves (as the save game doesn't appear in any user profile as i believe the actual save file is saved in the NAND).

    i just had a thought...i think the original base game that i installed was the global version (i recall seeing a lot of abbreviated languages in the file name), however the version that i reinstalled was the US version only. this may mean that the game ID number is different, and could be why the 222mb save file isn't being recognised as attached to the reinstalled game (global vs. US version). however, this doesn't address the point that JKSV doesn't pick up the 222mb file that i can see...unless it doesn't like global versions? would that even matter?!

    one way to find out i guess! i'll look for the global base game and give it a go...fingers crossed!

    If you don't have any real save files listed under the Animal Crossing device saves in JKSV, and you don't have any backups someplace like your computer, then you're probably out of luck.

    If you have a NAND backup from when you had the Animal Crossing save file on your system, you could grab it from that.

    i'm hoping that i can somehow access that 222mb save file i can see on the system (screenshot below) ... i just can't figure out why JKSV doesn't recognise it.

    no such luck with a NAND backup - think the last one i created was about a year ago, and the gf has been playing AC loads since then!

    If you cleared the game, you're still going to have a large save file with a new island. This blank island is only going to appear in JKSV if you back it up.

    So i completely fucked up and erased some old save folder data by accident and then realized i did that halfway through. I had to use another old save from christmas eve to restore whatever i had from animal crossing. Is there a way to bring those deleted folders back? Mind you, i forgot to save my current save lmao

    Sorry, it's gone. I guess adding some kind of trash bin feature/option is possible.

    well fuck... i still got my christmas eve save but still man..... that's obviously on me for being stupid lmao. I tried seeing if i could use some recovery program and they ain't poppin up. I doubt it would either way since i never made a backup for the save file i lost anyways lol

    Hey guys who actually follow this at all. I'm not dead yet. I finally sat down after close to four months and did some work. The last time I really sat down and had time to work, I completely rewrote how titles are loaded and changed a few things. Over the next few weeks, hopefully, I'm gonna go through issues/requests I've gotten. I'm also not totally sure if I'm gonna roll with this or not.

    I look forward to seeing the updated version of the app. Amazing homebrew, by the way. I've been using it since the 3DS.
