    How do I go about doing this? I finally got a CFW working with the newest update and I want to erase the games from Sysnand and redownload to Emunand. Thanks.

    Go to data management and delete the games (settings, software, 3ds software). Make sure your sysNAND and emuNAND are not linked as all your games will be erased.

    but the games are in your emuNAND did you format it or something?

    I have downloaded titles from before I used CFW. None of them show on my Emunand but they are on my Sysnand.

    everything installed on sysnand carries over when you make emunand

    I know somethings are. But are you sure EVERYTHING is carried over?

    Yes this is true, right after making an emuNAND and not formatting anything, emuNAND should look just like sysNAND as its pointing to the same files and everything. I assumed OP has unlinked emuNAND and sysNAND and had since installed stuff to sysNAND.

    Yes definitely - the partition on the SD card is a 1-1 copy of the NAND and it is using the exact same SD files

    Most logical answer if he did do it after unlinking

    No I havent installed any CIAs. Any stuff on my Sysnand was stuff I bought legit from the eshop long ago. IDK why none of it carried over to Emunand

    Can't you just redownload them from the eshop?

    Deleting them from your sysNAND won't help. Go to settings then NNID info and see which NNID you are linked to. If your sysNAND is on a firmware that's pre-NNID you'll just have to work out what your NNID is from memory (or check your email to see if you have any emails from Nintendo). Once you log in, your games will all appear (if they're on your SD card) or you'll be able to redownload them.
