    Hi guys, so, I'm transferring NSPs from my PC to my Switch SD Card (128GB Fat32). It was working fine until I transferred Ys VII which is 14GB. An error popped up saying File size is too large for destination filesystem. I still have 73GB of free storage. What should I do? Thanks in advance

    Either use exFAT which is not recommended or better install these games over USB.

    Oh I see. Thanks. Any workarounds, then?
    How to install games over USB? Is it Goldtree?

    Yes, if you use Goldleaf on your switch to install NSPs, simply use Goldtree on your computer.

    Thank you guys. I never made Goldtree work on my side. It just crashes. I'll retry using Goldtree later.

    I never used used goldtree and still use the "old and ugly" tinfoil with a python script on PC to install NSPs but it does the job

    I recommend you use NS-USBloader and then install with Goldleaf or OG Tinfoil USB fix 2.

    Goldleaf only supports installing one game over USB at a time. I suggest using http://tinfoil.io instead with nut server.

    I have 9 exFat Sd cards filled with XCI's and NSP's. Never had a single issue at all.

    Emulation card is fat32 but I literally never had or heard of anyone having issues with exFat with QUALITY cards using XCI's or NSP's.

    Just use exFat

    He already was given a solution that works with Fat32. There's zero reason for him to switch to Exfat.

    Exfat works fine but it is more corruption prone that all.

    I've heard this time and time again from reputable people and sources, so I imagine that it is true; however for my needs with games it works fine. I have a dedicated Fat32 formatted SD card for homebrew purposes, since I've heard it's better for that setup

    Yea for regular gaming it is fine, but if you want to do homebrew stuff you want stick to FAT32.

    Nsusbloader and tinfoil (og) gets the job done. Even batch installs.
    Goldtree crashes for me. Very unreliable in its current form.
