    hi

    i recently wanted to try something that invovled uninstalling a game from the vita b4 reinstalling it again, and so i wanted to backup the savefiles, i installed the savemanager and used it to try dump the same files from the game, i got some files and thought that that would be all i needed to get the savefiles back to the game after it's reinstalled.

    However after reinstalling the game, i tried running the savemanager and "import" the saves, but even when it says done, the game sees no savefiles. is there a way i can import/encrypt the saves so i can use them again or should i just give up and delete the files?

    Try create newsave files then overwrite them with your backup

    tried that nothing seemed to happen if i used savemanager
    edit: worse it even overwrites any new saves to nothing so i guess the saves are lost :(

    In your savedata folder, open sce_sys folder. Delete everything in that folder EXCEPT sdslot.dat. Try importing then.

    the thing is i used 0.5 when creating the save data because i assumed it was the newest one, so it made a backup of all save slots as sav.dat and a sce_sys folder. when importing didnt work, i tried to search and found version 0.7, ofcourse that has a slightly different format because it backups a save per slot, so i tried to rename to folder to slot0 for example and it detected the first save with time played etc, but trying to import it gives the same thing, aka if u look ingame it will have no savefiles, im not sure why its doing this. does save manager only support games dumped with vitamin ? or does that not matter.
