    I am running SXOS and Switch firmware 8.1.0.

    I came from Switch firmware 5.1.0 and have since used ChoiDujour twice to go to 8.0.1, and then to 8.1.0.

    What is the best way to go about converting from exFAT to FAT32?

    The reason I am asking is because I remember that during the ChoiDujour process, there is a step that involves choosing exFAT or FAT32, and I chose exFAT of course. So I wasn't sure if the traditional way to convert to FAT32 would mess anything up with what ChoiDujour did.

    Thank you!

    Backup your files, convert to FAT32 and copy everything back to the micro sd card. FAT32 has a file size limit of 4 GB so you can’t copy files with a greater size than 4 GB on your micro sd card anymore. Use goldtree to install games.

    But to confirm here.. there is the firmware that supports exfat and there is the format of the micro SD card.. Two seperate things

    exfat firmware installed via choir and sd card FAT32 are also compatible..
