    I have a corrupt folder showing 10gb in space on my 4gb mSD card and this folder was created from a snes emulator long ago, card currently shows 1.63gb when its 4gb max size.

    to my question:

    If I copy every folder from the mSD card to my pc, format the sd card and then put the folders back

    will everything work as it did before the format? i have ctrboogmanger/cfw/gateway..cias and stuff set up already and running

    tldr: can I safely copy, format mSD and move the folders back without losing any progress(cfw/gateway/cias)

    you will lose your emunand, maybe reinstall your .cias? but your hax will work and the files to run cfw and gw probably will

    I read up a bit more and it seems i should use:

    Emunand tool, extract emunand, format, create emunand with gateway menu(format emunand), inject the extracted one. copy back my files into root of formatted(now with new emunand+extracted) to get rid of my corrupt folder.

    only things im wondering about now is if i should ignore copying over Nintendo 3DS folder back? seems like that folder holds stuff for sys and emunand?

    also if anyone knows what happens to installed .cia files in sys/emu nand doing this i'd appriciate knowing in advance

    if it matters im running N3DS 9.0 emunand 9.5 gateway+reinand
