    I have completed NAND and 0/1 backup into Toolkit folder. I copied to my computer for saving, but I am not able to delete this Toolkit folder on my SD card, can someone tell me why? The SD card is not locked.

    Maybe the computer is still accessing files on it. Try reinserting the card then delete. Also you could try deleting from a different device. I have had issues like this on win 7 before

    I tried popping it out and in again, plus restarting my laptop also, but not helping. Even the regedit change to 0 on StorageDevicePolicies -> WriteProtect did not help

    Like I was saying, I've had similar issues in the past. Not sure what the cause ever was, but I was able to delete stubborn files using my tablet

    Entire card is read only.

    Also make sure you don't have a fake SD card. h2testw will verify for you

    It has worked before with a bunch of games on Switch so I don't think it is fake.

    I will try your application out now.

    Are you use a adapter to SD? Probably this is the problem

    Yeah sounds like you have a fake SD card. I would highly recommend backuping your nand again on another SD card to be safe, chances are your backup is corrupt

    Edit: your card could also be faulty. The fact that it's stuck in read only is something I haven't come across before. Could possibly be an issue with the write lock switch (never heard of this happening before tho)

    On a Windows PC, open the command prompt and run chkdsk /f X: , replacing X with the drive letter of your card. This will clear the dirty flag. Also, if it says it found any errors, your backup may be corrupt.

    Format it, it happened to me once. Your switch corrupted your SD card.

    ReiNX is known to corrupt your microSD, and btw exFat file system is not journaled (so it's more possible to corrupt)

    Thanks. It took some time to transfer entire SD card to PC, format and then transfer back.

    Just so you know, SD card corruption is not specific to ReiNX. All CFW are vulnerable to it, and it's something related to homebrew apps in general. That's why RetroNX doesn't officially support exFAT card because something their app does corrupts them a lot. When it's discovered why the corruption happens, we can start looking into a solution to it. In the mean time, you can just use fat32 cards to avoid the corruption, but they open up a different issue of "no files larger than 4GB." For emulating, it's not a problem, but it's an issue when you start playing backups.

    I know, and I mispelled; Rei Toolkit is likely to corrupt mSD, even Rei noticed that and wrote it in red in his thread, while CFWs not so much. I don't know about RetroNX, but as you said there isn't any problem for just emulating old games with Fat32.

    FAT32 is not journaled either.

    You're right, but the corruption is reported only on exFat mSD.
