Hi, first post here, apologies if this isn't the right subforum, or if this is an FAQ.

I just got my first switch and am running OFW 8.1.0 and SX OS CFW 2.8.

I have an emuNAND installed as files on SDcard, but after installing I realized it takes up half of my 64GB card (exFAT).

If in the future I want to utilize more file space, is it as simple as transferring over all card contents, or is there a tool I need to make the bridge cleanly?

Thanks!

Not sure if you figured this out, but since you are using SD files you can just copy everything from one SD to another SD.

Great thanks, that's what I was looking for!

If I use the partitioned emuNAND for the new SD card, is there a more involved process for transferring my files?

Yes. You would need to use a tool to mount the partition on a computer to copy it or a tool that can read the hidden partition. For me it's not worth the extra effort as it does not really make anything safer in my opinion.

I’ll stick to files on card. I don’t plan to connect to the internet at all anyway so it should be all good.

Please start your own thread when you have a new question.

If you want to move your save games from one sd card to another, Just back up your saves with Checkpoint, or SX Installer, switch your sd cards - then import them.
