    So here's my situation:
    I have and R4I Save Dongle, and I am borrowing my friends Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
    I like it, so I am thinking of getting it myself, but I don't want to lose my save.
    So I want to know if I can back up the save from the cart, buy the game from the eShop, and then use the Save Data Transfer Tool to put the save from the cart onto my 3DS. Then, take the save I backed up with the save dongle and put it back onto the cart, thus making two identical saves: one on the cart, and one on the system.

    ACNL uses a different save type. It works with any other game though.
