    SO I went to make a backup of my SD card and the backup should be made (Well.. It's on my desktop, lol) and when I put in my 2ds and boot, it can't find the info on the sdcard... Not sure if I can do anything against, but it's RIP I guess?

    Perhaps take it out and put it back in? If you just backed it up, try to re-format your SD card as FAT32, Cluster Size: 32 and copy your files back on.

    Yeah, I'm trying that now. My PC can still find it, so I thought formatting and restoring should do it. Now I just have to hope that nothing went wrong during the backup ofcourse. Otherwise I'll have lost all my games + saves, lol...... argh

    btw, I usually use SDformatter, since it also improves load times a slight bit.

    As long as you've backed up your Nintendo 3DS folder, your saves/games should be good (I can't say the same about homebrew/emulators though, but I hope you still have those too!)

    I have a sky3ds+ with the cubic ninja for ninjahax. Think it should be fine as long as the boot.3dx is still fine.

    boot.3dsx isn't really relevant, and can be re-downloaded. I'm not sure how the save structure on Sky3DS+ works, but if it's internal to the cart itself, then you're fine.

    afaik, you just need to copy .3ds backups on a micro SD (which you put in the Sky3DS), so except if he is *really* unlucky, he should be fine :P

    As long as the backup didn't go wrong I - should - be fine. Otherwise I just have to put back the backup from even before that. No idea if I still have it, but I should.

    thanks. I still ended up with the error so I'm redoing ninjhax. Hopefully it works... Always great random issue's after a backup... Great, I'm finally in my emunand and all games are still installed. Time to try this 11.0 update through system settings and see if it will work.
