    . . .whenever you go over 30 huh . . . sounds like a fake card regardless to answer your question
    use emuanad tool to create a emunand backup and drag and drop the rest onto the pc . . . if you corrupt again ( . . . think about buying a new sd card) format it using the sd formatting application you can find on the nintendo website
    then run easeus to format it to fat32
    install emunand to the sd card
    then reinject the emunand.bin then drag and drop the remaining files back to the sd

    Sigh.....
    Noob needs to know how to post in the right place.
    But seriously I say this daily, DO NOT POST A QUESTION IN THE TUTORIAL SECTION. EVER. EVER.
    Not trying to be rude or anything but it really ticks me off that so many people do this.
    It says right on the front page of the tutorials section, and I quote, 'DO NOT ASK QUESTIONS HERE. ONLY WRITE GUIDES TO HELP OTHER USERS.'
    But, to answer your question, you can use Decrypt9 [https://gbatemp.net/threads/download-decrypt9-open-source-decryption-tools-wip.388831/] To back up your sysNAND and emuNAND, so long as you are on 9.2 or lower. To my knowledge you can't really make a backup beyond that, but you wouldn't really need to because you can't do anything that would be dangerous enough to need a backup.
    Mods please move the thread.
