    Does anyone know if there is a way to have multiple saves for 1 game and choose each time which save to use?
    For example,I have R4DS with moonshell 1,6 and maybe i can create folders with many saves for,lets say,HArvest moon or sims2
    and have the ability to choose a save file each time.
    Is it possible?

    You'd need to have a folder for each, with a .nds of the game for each.

    Or you could have AC.nds with NC.sav and AC2.nds with AC2.sav, etc.

    I think you could use dsorganize for that. Just put the 2 or more saves with different names on the card with the rom, and then using dsorganize rename which ever one you want to use to match the rom name, and then when want to use the other one change the existing name to a different one and then change the name of the other save to the same as the rom. A little painfull, but you won't need a computer to do it.

    I think Zendriks advice is best =) except he meant "have AC.nds with AC.sav" not NC.sav

    yeah, but then you have the 2 of the same roms on your card taking up space.
    Using dsorganize you just have to be carefull not to overwrite your .sav files when renaming them.

    Not in any useful way. You can back up your save for a game, but you can only have the main save and one backup. What's worse, you cannot switch between the main save and the backup, you can only overwrite one with the other.
