I don't trust Nintendo's archaic methods of digital content, including saves supposedly on a memory card, so I was wondering if it is possible to just back them up on my PC or external HDD.

If digital, just back them up to a PC.
If retail, use a third party adapter like NDS Save Adapter.

^I've had no issues with backing up my digital saves for 3DSware and then restoring them.

that's only because your still using your current 3ds. the save files are tied to the system in other words unless you do a system transfer you cannot use this save data on another 3ds

TC didn't say anything about using a different 3DS, TC just asked how to go about backing up your saves.
