I recently found my Pokémon gold cartridge, which I had from a very long time ago and I was surprised that it was still working after at least 7 years. I could play and save almost normally; the only exception was that I had to set the clock every time. After a week or so, it just stopped saving, and I stopped playing it. Some time after that my seven-year-old nephew saw my Gameboy with the game attached and overwrote my old save ( the horror!), saving a new file. (Honestly I do not know how, because it could not save anymore.) Now I've lost my old save and can't continue a new one.
Can I somehow recover the save?, Maybe not the conventional way, but I mean data is data, right? The same way you can recover info from a computer if deleted. Is there something I can do to recover that "data"? Childhood memories are on the line!
FYI - I tagged this Gameboy Advance because there was not a Gameboy Color tag; and because I used to play on a Gameboy Advance.
