    Been trying to figure a way out. I thought it would be easy via VITA Shell but that only shows ux:o portion of the card and not where my game files are located. Does anyone have any ideas?

    correct me if i am mistaken but Vita data is locked.

    you will need to ftp the memory card contents, this will show all directories.

    But how do you propose I transfer vitashell to the new card? I already have my vita permanently unlocked via Enso, I just don't see a means of getting vitashell to the new card.

    i dont think you can just simply copy/paste content off one card to a new one, apps will need installing.

    but you can make a copy of data on your card via ftp which will show you all directories.

    You need to show hidden and protected files on PC to made a safe copy from one sd to another:

    1) Click the “View” tab on File Explorer’s ribbon and click the “Hidden items” checkbox in the Show/hide section. File Explorer will immediately show hidden files and will remember this setting until you change it;
    2) Now click on the "options" at the top right of the screen and then on "change options", go to "view" tab and unmark "Hide protected files".

    Profit!

    Use USB transfers through Vitashell (press select) and then manage via PC.
