Using checkpoint, I accidentaly restored a backup to the wrong user and lost my save there, and I was thinking if there was a way to backup the original save file from the console memory, or does the restore completely overwrite the original save file, making it impossible to restore with no backup?

Yes.

That's why you should always backup before replacing a save file.

Still, maybe you could do some save editing or something. Otherwise, just start the game again.

I mean, if you really like a game; playing it again from zero is fun.

Checkpoint 3.7.0 was crashing on me when launching through album. It only works when holding R button and launching through a installed NSW game.

Holding R from an NSP worked for me on 3.7.0. This worked for me! Thanks. (Using sxos :/)


Of note. If you are trying to restore, hit the R trigger button after starting the game you want to restore to. I wasn't seeing my backed up saves until I hit the R/L button and selected my new Account.

I was able to backup saves, but I can't get the cheats working in sxos cfw. If that feature is atmosphere centric, that should be written somewhere in the docs to avoid misunderstandings.

Hey, I wanted to backup/restore my save game from Links Awakening from 8.1 emunand to 9.0 stock nand. But it just won't show up on the stock nand. It works with every other title. Only Links Awakening is not working.

Does anyone has a clue what's going on here?

is it a current bug where saves for newer games are saved under a [titleID + titleID] folder rather than [titleID + Game Name] folder?
if i rename manually to titleID+ (manual name) will this work?

I'm not sure if it will help but I was having issues with checkpoint and this was the first thing that worked. It's checkpoint as a .nsp rather than nro.

I hope it can work

I used kefir updater but my backup saves are not restoring using Checkpoint.

I deleted all saves on the system after installing Kefir, started the game, saved. closed the game. opened Checkpoint, restored the save. It looked like it worked on checkpoint. Opened the game but the save is not there.

Anyone have any tips? I am on the latest version of hekate, atmosphere, and 9.1.0

Also, my BOTW save is not showing up in checkpoint any more either.

I have an issue where on latest atmo + 9.1.0 no games with a save made in 9.1.0 will show up in the latest Checkpoint. It only shows me saves made before I updated firmware.

it makes the folders on the SD for them but they don’t show in the launcher.

Please change the default action for hitting A on a savegame to not try to restore it. Requiring the shoulder buttons for this major action, with confirmation, is enough and much safer.

Anyone else noticed that the savefile for "Animal Crossing New Horizon" in switch internal memory doesn't appear in list of games in checkpoint to make a save backup?
This is the first game to ever give me this problem and I been using Checkpoint for quite a while.
