ive got a 1tb sandisk micro sd card, intend to use in my switch.

By default it format as exfat but i hear this is no good for the switch and fat32 is needed.

Problem i find when i format as fat32 when i start copying my old data back off my 400gb sandisk (fat32) the card corrupts itself.

But formatted it again as exfat and everything so far seems to be copying over with no corrupting of the sd card.

That's indeed odd bc FAT32 is less prone to data corruption that exfat (specially on the Switch) could it be a case of potential hardware based issue?
