Why do they have an option for "Alternative" save?

    It's much easier to have saves in the same folder as your games. Alternative just makes it more confusing

    Loads of people requested for an alternate save path in the TC forum, actually, that's why they implemented it. I also think it's easier when the save files are in the same folder but apparently some people prefer the alternative.

    Why on earth would you use two CycloDS carts? Why not just use two MicroSD's?

    I like having them in a different folder, because I can just drag the folder onto my PC to back up.

    Well i think one reason is its easier to backup save files. Instead of having to select saves and dodging the .nds, its easier to have all sav in one folder.

    Although a way to avoid that would be to sort files by type, then just select all the .sav files like that.

    But yeah, I think this is a great feature. Good for the people who like to have a individual folder for different file types.
