I always run Citra Updater (the Maintenance Tool) when I started my PC, as I listed it as one of the startup app, and wanted to keep my stuff up-to-date. Today, I let my mom use my PC for awhile, and she accidently uninstall Citra…
Things would be OK if my user folder, as well as the ROM folder I made (for the obvious purpose) inside Citra’s main folder remained intact. But it wasn’t. All of the savefiles, all of my settings, as well as the collection of dumped ROMs and DLC, they all gone after the uninstall. My D:/ drive, which usually have around 25GB free, is now 78.2GB free… And you know what’s worse? I sold my 3DS months ago, so no, I can’t even think about getting the lost files back.
…Sorry for ranting, guys, I’m just too shocked. So please, if you guys are still working on the update, make it so that it wouldn’t erase the whole Citra folder without a single trace, make an option like “keeping personal files” or something like that and make it default. And for non-devs who read this, please, don’t make the same mistakes as I did, as it will now haunt me for the rest of my life.
- Operating System: Windows 10 Build 1809
- CPU: Intel Core i3-2348M
- GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000 (OpenGL 3.3 through MESA)
- Citra Version (found in title bar): How should I know? It got uninstalled, both Canary and Nightly.
- Game: …Seriously?
- Screenshot of Issue (include the full Citra window including titlebar): …Why?
…If it did exist, it should be gone by now.
Update: It’s fine, I got over it Turned out I got my saves backed up on OneDrive, and my best bud got the ROM covered. The settings are still gone though
