I have a bunch of save states on Citra Nightly 1636 and I want to load a specific save state, go and save my game in game, and then back that save file up from the AppData folder.
I have my main save game files on Citra Nightly 1850, which has my progress that’s much farther ahead than the 1636 save state, and I can back up the save files at will and they work as intended.
The issue I’m running into is that, if I load up the save state I want on Citra Nightly 1636, there are no save files (whether I delete the 1850 files or not), and if I go and save the game and then try to load the game the save I just made is not there. For whatever reason the game is unable to save my game, so the save state I have is stuck in limbo as a save state.
What I’m trying to do is make a game save on that save state so I can save that previous progress and back it up, but it’s not working and instead it just doesn’t save. What can I do to save that save state?

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.
Gonna answer my own question, it seems like the issue is similar to this:
Looking at my log file, I’m noticing that the mount point is showing my laptop’s user folder rather than my current PCs, which might explain why I’m unable to do any saves on the save state.
What I’m gonna try is to transfer the Citra folder and the game rom to my laptop and attempt to make a save there, then bring the save files from the laptop to the main PC and hopefully that works. I will update when I find out if it worked or not
I can safely say that I have the save files now! Glad that I did some research and ran into that post when I did, and actually looked at my log files too, cause otherwise I would’ve just racked my brain against that forever.
