Citra crashing when trying to access saves and play coins

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
I’ve been playing Persona Q, and it was going just fine until a little while ago, when it started to have a fatal error whenever I tried to save in game or whenever the game tried to check the play coins. It seems like things that would be related to the internal system, but I can’t think of anything to fix it.

I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Looking at the log and the related code (core\file_sys\archive_extsavedata.cpp, core\file_sys\savedata_archive.h) I believe there’s an oversight on how SaveDataArchive is serialized (it probably shouldn’t be) and so savestates break saving if you changed the user folder path.
What I think happened is that you had a save state you made previously, then you changed the path to citra’s user folder somehow (moved the folder, or maybe it’s on a USB stick and it’s no longer F:) so it broke anything that needs access to the emulated filesys.

So my only solution for you would be to find a way to get citra to be on F:\Citra\nightly-mingw again and save conventionally there (and then you can move back, conventional saves are not affected by this issue).

Thanks for the response, and you were right about it being on a USB and the user folder being moved, so now I think I know how to fix the issue. Thanks a bunch.
