    Hello
    so, for a long while, I didn'T need to remove my MicroSdCard from my N3ds (for months)
    But now, I wanted to add a gba emulator plus some hacked pokemon rom on it to play,
    but to realise that, once my SD card inserted in my comp, I need to format it...
    Is there any way to backup my files before formating it?
    Is there any way to recover my files, because i didnt make any backup...
    Also, how do I get all the data needed to restore my Luma on my sd card if I really need to format it?
    As I said, I didnt made any backup of anything on my sd card...
    If there are per-0console specific files, is there a way to recover them too?

    thanks for all informations

    If your console still reads the SD card, you could use an FTP app to copy the files to your computer. There's also software that can recover data from bad SD cards, but it may not get all of it.

    If it's an N3DS you can use the function in System Settings -> Data Management -> SD management, and connect through the network things (where you can see wireless drives and stuff)

    probably at home
    Just install WinSCP, personally I think it's the best client to use. It's more that you can also use this with a raspberry pi to send terminal commands without having to open putty (as long if they are simple commands like sudo reboot).
