Basically I’m facing an issue with the save location of my Pokemon Ultra Moon Rom.
I want to be able to backup my save file in case something happens to my version of Citra or my Laptop yet all my research shows methods that I cannot use since i cannot find any “User” Folder in my Citra folder.
In order to play the game, I open Citra and drag-and-drop the ROM that is located on my desktop. When I save in-game, I can continue from where I left off, But when I open Citra I cannot locate the game from there, I have always just been dragging ang dropping the ROM in order to continue playing.
Please let me know is there is anything I can do in order to locate and backup my save file.
Thanks in advace!
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.
As shown on the UI, double click on it, a folder dialog will pop up, just point to where your rom is located:
After that your games will appear in the list, right click on it and choose ‘Open Save Data Location’.
that will open your save file folder. but its safer to backup your whole save folder. if you look at your save data directory you will see something like:
All games save data are folders inside the folder
00040000, since you open your save location, the
000XXXX0 is your save data.
Will doing that affect my current save data ?
I am asking this as I have already 109+ hours of gameplay and would not want to risk anything. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I would rather not risk anything like resetting my save. Thank you
doing that will just copy your save data. if you want, you can just open that folder by going directly into:
just look for a folder with the game titleid, UM is
Thank you so much, This is really helpful!
Now that I have located everything, Could you just please let me know what I should copy and past onto my pen-drive in order to backup my save for future reference ?
Should I copy the entire folder called 0000000 ?
Thank you in advance!
This is my Directory:
Should I copy “sdmc” or something else ?
what I should copy and past onto my pen-drive in order to backup my save
in this directory you should copy
Note that not every single game has its save data on
00040000, some games saves are on the extra data (e.g: Monster Hunter X)
if you want to backup any potential save, backup both
title folders on:
if you want to be ‘paranoid’ safe, just copy the entire
citra folder on:
thank you so much! Really appreciated.
