Re: Pokemon save corruption issues (work-around in thread)

I just went all over these 14 pages and cant find any solution to my problem.
The first time i played Pokemon SS is was bugged i guess. I got to the point at the lake of rage where the red gyarados didnt drop the red scale. That means i cant continue. So i decided to restart from beginnin. (Here is my last ingame save)

Now here we go:
I played pretty much on quickload saves and savestates, because i forgot to delete the old ingame save. So my last quickload save is before i fight lance.
After i defeat the E4, i cant continue because there is only an ingame save from much earlier.
When i try so save ingame (on my quickload before i fight lance) it says: There is alreay a saved game file it is impossible to save. Please refer to the instruction booklet for details.
I clearly unterstand the problem but i dont know how to fix it because nothing of these 14 pages worked. My ingame save is pretty much grounded in the quickload. If i delete the ingame save i wont affect the ingame save in my savestate because of this grounding. Is there any way to avoid this and renew an ingame save from my accuall gameplay on my quickload?

Plssssssssss help me :)

Here's something you can try that may or may not work:

1) Rename the in-game save file for the game to something else. It's in /sdcard/DraStic/backup and will be named like the ROM but with the extension ".dsv" This way the game will have no saves and will reformat them.
2) Load your save state and make an in-game save.
3) Reset the game (you can soft-reset with start + select + L + R) and try to load the in-game save.

Please let me know if that works.
This worked for me, thanks mate for saving my times..

I have corrupted data in white 2.

And this works for me:
1. Drastic option->advanced uncheck "Store in-game Saves in Savestates"
2. Drastic option->System check "always use system time for RTC"
3. Load your desire state and save the state to another slot as state 2
4. Hard reset the game and Use the "Select + up + B" to clean all data.
5. load state 2 and do "in-game saving". This will take longer than usual.
4. do "in-game saving" once more. This time will be fast.
5. Hard Reset game and see if you can see your profile now.

Hope it helps.

My problem is very similar to that of several people here, I can only access the save state and the game save is corrupted, but the difference is that when I enter the save state and try to save the game the screen freezes, the game music keeps playing, but it doesn’t save and stays like that indefinitely, does anyone know how I can fix it?
