    Hello there, I hope this is in the right place.

    Recently I've been playing through Pokemon Leaf Green on my M3DS Real (using the GBA expansion), and had a saved game on the card which was working perfectly.
    I have a utility on my M3 that allows me to save backup copies of actual GBA cartridge save files, which I use to copy my physical cartridge saves to file (.sav), play them on emulator, save changes, and then re-upload them to the cartridge.

    I used this utility to save a backup of my Fire Red catridge's save, but then found that doing so had somehow corrupted my Leaf Green save (stored on the SD card as well)-now, whenever I try to load the LG save (on the M3 itself, and on both GBA emulators that I have tried), the game states that the save is corrupted, and that it will load the 'previous save'-and then presents me with my extracted FR save (even though the ROM is still Leaf Green, and plays appropriately)

    I can only assume that by running the GBA backup utility, the LG save was affected and somehow picked up the FR save. Is there any way at all I can recover the save as it was?

    Apologies if this is in the wrong place.


    Desperately hopeful,

    unless you have a backup of your save, doubt you can make it back to what it was.

    next time, backup everything you do [​IMG]
