Accidentally hit restart under the emulation setting

My build is Citra Nightly #882

As the title says I accidentally hit the restart option under the emulation setting while a game was open.I thought that it would just close the game and reopen it but instead it completely restarted the whole game and when I tried opening my game file again the game was restarted as if it was my first time playing it.

Is there a way I could restore my saved data? Thanks.

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

which game? restarting on citra has basically the same effect as powering off the real 3ds, it doesn’t wipe data. you would lose progress the same way on the real 3ds.
