    For those who have successfully done the OTP portion of the guide, how much space does the emunand/sysnand back ups take up? My microSD card is 64 Gb and it has roughly 18 Gb free. Would the emunand backup only take up ~4 Gb like a gateway NAND back up or would it also include a backup of my cias? Hopefully this makes sense. Thanks!

    It's normal NAND backups, so 1-2 GB apiece.

    Emunand backup just has the system nand backed up, the game data from CIAs are installed to the SD card.

    Here are the sizes for my emuNANDS:
    Old 3DS -- 976,896 KB
    New 3DS -- 1,933,312 KB

    About 2 GB per dump (Emunand/Sysnand/Xorpad) on N3DS and 1 GB per dump on O3DS. You will be copying the files over to your computer anyways so you will be able to free space on your SD card.
