Hello everyone

I'm looking for a solution to backup only the emunand raw partition of my SD card because every software i tried are making full backup of the 128GB micro sd card.

So, do you have any software recommendation / tutorials / anything to do the backup the raw emunand partition ? (on Windows)

are you familiar with command line? if so, you can use dd
it's unix app but there's port for windows or you can use cygwin to run dd (the windows port didn't work for me for some reason)

If you are asking that question, then dd would not be appropriate for your skill level.

The only thing valuable about an emuMMC partition is that it has save data for games. Extract that to SD:/switch/checkpoint/saves using Checkpoint. The rest of everything else (sd card contents, nand nsp's, software config) can be replaced easily or is otherwise unimportant.

Why exactly are trying to make a backup if I may ask?

Thanks.
I was also looking for a way to backup the RAW partition of EmuNAND, just to be safe (and keep my savegames). I'll go the other route and export saves with Checkpoint. I want to rebuild my entire SD because of some ongoing problems.
