Hi,

I'm playing Botw on my switch (10.1.0) with sx os 3.0.5 Beta. I was using the newly released Save Manager 1.1 to make backups of my save games. Now I've edited one of the save games and tried to restore the zip file. The Save Manager succeeded but in the game the save was the same as before. So I've tried deleting the other saves in the backup (those folders 0 - 5) and only kept number 4, my save. After this restore Botw was showing the intro again and all saves where gone. I still can't restore other save games. Tools like Checkpoint and Jksv don't work at all - they don't show any of my saves.

I did not create an emunand before. Could this be the reason those other tools are not working? But I still wonder why the SX Save Manager gives success message but I can't see a change.

What could I do to get my saves back?

Btw. I would've asked that in the TX forum but currently it seems to be impossible to register there since I'm not getting the activation mail.

What about EdiZon?

Is it possible that your save edit didn't work? I would try restoring the original unedited save to see if it restores your progress after you deleted saves 1-5. That way you can tell if the app is broken or your edit didn't work.
