    I, being the idiot that I am, was attempting to send my emunand from my o3ds to my n3ds, but in the process of setting it all up, my title.db and import.db files somehow got deleted and I no longer have a backup of them.

    Is it possible to restore them using an emuNAND.bin backup? Or am I asking the impossible and I've just lost all my games and saves?

    Edit: Or just any way to get it back?

    can't you create blank title and import db files and go into Data Management to regenerate them?

    I tried that and it didn't regenerate them. It said it would delete all games and save data because it was corrupted or something.

    Wait can i do vice-versa. I had to load an older emunand.bin, and some of my games are gone. Could i get them back in anyway?

    This information is stored on the SD card, so your emunand.bin alone will not work.

    Maybe you can use the .db files of your sysnand if you have a copy of them before you unlinked sysnand and emunand
