    Can anyone tell me where are the files that when you format emunand,(gateway menu) it appears?

    Reason: I want a new emunand and i dont know what files to delete so i can make a new one on my 3ds sd card. I just dont want the old emunand files on my sd card.

    Did you unlink your emunand? You will get a new ID in your "Nintendo 3DS" folder on your SD Card. If you create a second emuNAND and unlink it again, you will get a new ID again.

    I dont think i did... all i did is back up the old 3ds sd card, format the old and new sd card, and put the files from the back up in the new sd card.

    would be better ;)
    The EmuNAND copy of your SysNAND have the same ID, if you format it, it will get a new ID.
    Different Emunands = Different IDs in the "Nintendo 3DS" folder

    So if i unlink emunand, will it delete the old emunand files? Or do i have to delete them manually?

    Format the sysnand WITHOUT the SD Card, insert the card again and dump your secondary EmuNAND.

    Keep in mind that if your EmuNAND was linked, the files used by EmuNAND are shared with SysNAND (The point of unlinking is to make both NANDs use different files in the SD), if you delete the Nintendo 3DS folder you will also lose the data that your SysNAND uses (If you use menuhax, deleting the folder will uninstall it).

    Change the theme of the sysnand (or emunand), if the theme of the emunand (or respectively sysnand) also changes, then your nands are linked.

    Ok this is what i got in mind:
    Method 1:
    Delete nintendo 3ds file.
    Format sysnand on 3ds.
    Make a new emunand.
    And put menuhax again.

    Method 2:
    Format sysnand on 3ds.
    Make a new emunand.
    Comparing with the back up i made, ill delete the old file with the bunch of letters and numbers, and ill keep the new folder.

    Or give me your way to do this.

    @Merrx
    Yeah, they are linked.

    So you only have one random number folder inside of your "Nintendo 3DS" folder on your SD card?
    If more, then change the theme and look for changes in the last change date on your SD card, so you should trace back, which is the one currently in use.

    Unlinking NANDs (short)
    Then your should use TinyFormat on either emunand or sysnand and they will be unlinked.
    I recommend emunand.
    You have to start Homebrew in emunand and then use tinyformat, then do the first-time setup.
    Afterwards check if your nands are unlinked, by changing the themes.

    Can I ask why you want to create a new EmuNAND? You really don't need to delete the old Emunand files since they are being used with Sysnand, if you want to clean up space you can go to sd:/Nintendo 3DS/<id0>/<id1>/ and delete everything except for the extdata folder (Which stores the Menuhax files, along with extra data of games you have played). Then format your Emunand (Thus un-linking it).

    Im at work right now, so i cant check. Ill tell if have 1 or more folders.

    I got a faster sd card for my 3ds and i want to move it. The old sd was a fake/broken.

    Btw i might try doing your way.

    I see... It's possible to move Emunand between SDs with EmunandTool9, but if your old SD is really a fake or is broken it might be safe to just set everything from scratch.

    Which nand have you mostly used?
    Are there things on (the old) emunand you want to keep?

    I don't see the point in using Method 1, if you start from the beginning of setting up an emunand (for the new card).
    You can keep your nintendo 3ds folder (which is used by sysnand) and don't need to format your sysnand.
    Just simply use the EmunandTool9 tool to create a new emunand on the new sd card.
    Then you just have to unlink the new emunand from your sysnand.
    Use TinyFormat for the unlinking, since it only formats settings and leaves the sd card untouched.
