    I'm sure this type of question has been answered 100 times but despite my search efforts I found no answer.

    How can I create a duplicate folder of the saved files on my micro sd in case something happens, like if I lose it?

    Thanks.

    Your savegames are saved as a *.sav file (with the * being your rom's filename without the .nds extension) and are located in the same folder as your ds roms. You can copy all .sav files to any place you want because they behave like ordinary files in any operating system. I'd personally recommend you to put them on your pc however, because if your micro SD gets corrupted, you at least have a backup in another place.

    thanks for the help.

    Thats what I'm trying to figure out. How to create backup files of the games themselves. Not the save files.

    Lol, the title specifically says "newb question". Yet you came in here with a smug reply. Which one of us is really bored?

    anyway, i'll figure it out eventually.
