    Hey guys,
    I tried to use the search function, but I didn't find an answer, so if this question was already answered, I'm sorry about that.

    I just wondered, AFAIK the space left on the SD Card shown in the EmuNAND is apparently the same as the one the SysNAND. At least it shows the same space left, so I guess it would make sense.
    So if I happen to install a game on the SD Card in EmuNAND, what happens if I switch over to SysNAND? Is the game available over there too? And if yes, couldn't I get banned for this?

    Thanks for the help

    When you install a game on your SD card while using your sysNAND it is installed in the Nintendo folder at the root of your SD card. When you create an emuNAND partition, it gets its own corresponding Nintendo folder assigned, usually in sdmc:/emuMMC/RAW#/Nintendo, where # is the number of your emuNAND partition (check the path in the emuMMC menu of Nyx). So if you install a game on your SD card while using emuNAND it will be installed in this folder.
    In other words after your emuNAND is set up if you want to have the same content on your SD available on both your emuNAND and your sysNAND you have to install it twice, and if you install it only while on emuNAND it won't be "seen" by your sysNAND and you won't get banned.
