    I think there is no homebrew for backing up Nintendo DS game saves. Just use the computer to backup your saves.

    indeed, why don't you make a folder called myds save games and copy your nds save to there?

    Where intellect matters
    Better yet copy them to your computer in case your micro sd gets corrupted.

    you see, for some strange reasons some of my save games get corrupted very often.it's very time consuming to use my pc to backup my save games every time my gaming session ends.so it would be helpful to me if there was a homebrew that i could use to backup my gamesaves quickly in the micro sd card.

    Just to add that v3.1129 of DSOrganize does not have any corruption issues v3.2, however does.

    Even 3.1129 has corrupted my card on occasion, so I use it as little as possible. Shame he never went with the much-more-stable libfat rather than sticking with his modified version of gba_nds_fat.

    And even more of a shame that folks were so mean to him that he gave up on the Homebrew scene and stopped developing (sorry, going off topic)

    Anyhow, hope you get sorted.

    if there isn't any homebrew like that can you guys at least suggest some homebrews that can copy paste files without corrupting the card like a decent file manager.

    How much interest would there be in such a thing?
    I'm currently busy with my summer job but I may have a week or two to look at it at the start of September.

    I usually use DSLinux for copy/paste, which is kinda tedious but tab-completion helps a lot. Of course, slot-2 RAM greatly helps DSLinux run.

    The moonshell version the EZ-v Uses allow you to copy and paste files inside the flashcart menu
