    Everytime I make a new note and try to delete one, swapnote says an error has occurred.
    And I tried deleting swapnote and re downloading it but no results. Please help :(

    somewhere
    May have to contact nintendo on that one. May be a simple connectivity issue, but u never know. Could be something more complex and you'll have to get repair. I've had it happen a couple times but not that frequent.

    I had a similar problem, it would download a note then say you already had it even though I didn't. I had to delete my notes, then turn off spotpass and streetpass. Turn the program off, then open it again and choose spotpass delivery check and then it would check to see if I could receive notes again then turn the passes back on and it has been fine since.

    Re-format your SD card? (Before you back-up your archives)

    This. I answered too late though, but I have had the same problem before.

    You lose everything, INCLUDING NIKKI's NOTES. Or, at least, I did.

    I used to have errors all the time where I would randomly get swapnotes with a future date on them (so they would show up as the "newest" for up to a month sometime), and sometimes i even got swapnotes dated from 2004 and 2009, which isn't possible for obvious reasons. Sometimes, I would even get a swapnote 2 weeks after i was supposed to receive it. That doesn't seem to happen anymore, though.

    I backed up what I can and reformatted the SD card. It's the only thing I can think of that can cause spontaneous data corruption.

    So, I copy all the files on my sd card and put it on my computer?

    Then format and put them back. Will the e-shop games and other stuff will be there? Plz reply soon

    Yes. I've done it before. Just make sure you keep everything in the same folders, etc and you'll be fine.

    Thnx ^_^
    Copying all files now... Once I'm done copying, can I format my sd card just by "Format..." in windows or SD Formatter?

    Yes what? Windows standard format or sd formatter? I think I'll go with sd formatter.
    It takes a lot of time copying all these files :ninja:

    I can't copy all those files :(

    Tried separately but still no results. At some points the copying gets stuck in one file and doesn't copy.
    What should I do?

    Oh. my apologies, i didnt realize you were asking a question. Windows standard format should work fine.
    Idk man. sounds like some of your files are corrupted. :(

    Skip that file. You may lose data for a game that was stored in that file though. It does explain why there are errors though, probably just data corruption.
