    To create the emunand the gateway thing says it will format my sd card. is is possible to simplly backup my sd card and put everything back on it after it is formated? don´t won´t to lose over 200€ e shop games.

    You can keep the Nintendo 3DS folder. There's no reason to force yourself to re-download all your games.

    It's absolutely not necessary.

    @Xen0 just restore the entire SD card backup after formatting emunand

    One more question, it´s finished, so how do i switch between Emunand and sysnand? And how can <i put my backup on the sd card, since it generated a very one nintendo 3ds folder?
