I made a HUGE MISTAKE and deleted the partition where my EmuNAND was running from, now I lost my save files. Can I recover it? I tried some Windows tools but I believe they cannot find files within the deleted partition because it is in another file system. Thank you!

Get a partition editor, like GParted and run it on the card. Use the options to recover partitions and cross your public hairs.

You didn't happen to delete and format the card, did you?

I deleted the partition, then used NxNandManager to create a new one with an older EmuNAND backup file I had. (Didn't know the save files would be there )

I will try your suggestion, thank you!

Living and learning as they say.

Thank you nonetheless!

Usually if deleting a partition, one can recover it easily if didn't wite anything more to the partition space. And there might be the possibility that some data could be corrupt, making your system unstable.

Either way, the lesson is that as soon as you saw the partition dissappear, you should have stopped using the card. And then tried to recover.

Sorry for being unable to help.

But I hope you feel some love from my part coming your way.
