    Hi guys

    I'm running a Emunand on an SD card with a second hidden partition and I want to migrate it over to a much bigger SD card, I created the same hidden fat32 partition on the new card but how do I now copy the Emunand over to the new SD card ?...obviously in windows with the 2nd partition being hidden I can't access it with the normal Windows 10 tools.

    So my question is how do I access the first SD cards hidden partition and copy everything from the hidden partition over to the new hidden partition on the 2nd SD card ?

    I should probably add I want to keep my first SD card fully working also so I end up with 2 SD cards with the same

    The first time I used the Windows DD utility and DD command to copy it, so would i use the same application to do it again ? I've searched online but I'm not sure what command I would use ?

    Many thanks :)

    Ok so just for info in-case anyone else wants to migrate there EmuNand across from a smaller SD card onto a much larger SD card like I have...which I'd imagine is alot of people then all I did was fire up the same mini tool partition wizard I used from this original guide here https://gbatemp.net/threads/emummc-setup-win-linux-quadboot.541152/

    This amazing little app also allows you too copy a partition ( even if it is hidden ) so I used this to copy the hidden partition across from one SD card to the other...it really was that easy :)

    Hopefully that will help someone :)

    I’ve just bought a bigger SD card today and I’d like to keep all I’ve got on mine (emuNAND included) and just use the extra space.
    Basically I’d like to clone my SD to a bigger one, keeping emuNAND working .

    Did you achieve that? If so , mind just writing a very brief how-to?

    Cheers :)
