    I've tried both NDS Backup Tool and savegame_manager, they're both connecting to my smallftp server fine but neither of them can find the .sav files for some reason (I've even tried other peoples save files) - I've created the folder on the root of my C drive and double-checked the settings in smallftp 50 times to make sure they're correct according to the included readmes. Anyone got any ideas?

    ok, after several tries it worked fine..
    make sure you have a folder C:\NDS_Backup and permitions like this:
    dasdsafsafas.png

    when selecting directory, don't touch "virtual path"


    the 3.0 version of the tool doesnt boot on my dstwo.. not sure why... so use 2.4 (tell me if 3.0 worked for you..)


    try port 8080 or 21 (i know it connets but try it anyway)

    make sure you have no firewall blocking the thing.. like comodo..

    also, try to BACKUP YOUR SAVE FIRST, AND RESTORE IT! this will make sure it is working

    keep in mind, some saves need to be converted, so backup and restore to make sure it gets successful

    Apologies, wasn't home to test it yesterday, just been able to confirm my settings are the same as yours though (attached) - I had also already tried 2.4 and a different port - shouldn't be any firewall issues, I even created a rule within Windows Firewall to allow all connections on port 21.

    I hadn't tried to backup my save though, when I did, again the existing .savs (attached) didn't show up so I pressed L+R to create a new file and it hasn't moved past 0% for 10 mins now (I'm assuming this isn't normal).

    Any ideas what the issue could be?

    Thanks again,

    *EDIT* When login shows up on smallftp is says 'PASV' next to the username, I don't know if that means anything?
