    You don't have to put them in any folder, I have all my XCIs on the root of the hard drive and they work.

    If you have xci on your sd, installer can parse that information faster between sd and hdd if your directories are the same, not to mention you'll encounter less errors if you have hundreds of files.

    You're speaking nonsense there is no difference in the speed regardless if you put them in a folder or not.

    Feel free to back up your claim with some proof otherwise it's nonsense. Just someone that can't handle being told they're wrong.

    Here's my proof that you're wrong an admin for Team Xecuter saying he puts them on the root, or I guess you know more than him.

    Yet he puts them on the root. Get a brain.

    Way to back up your claim with nothing.

    Dont know who youre talking about. You keep changing the argument you said had to be in folder it doesnt. Nsps can be on root too to install so yet again you're wrong.

    I read through earlier. Funny thing is. You recommended someone to use exfat on their HDD to launch their XCIs through SXOS LOL! Even though you were saying to use fat32. Why not recommend your PC transfer for XCIs. Is this maybe, FAT32 file system has a 4GB file limit?... As I said, when running commercial content, exfat is the way to go. Plug in an SDXC card in to your switch (128Gb as EG) format it through your switch. Stock or CFW. Let me know what file system your SD card is formatted to ;)

    Guy is a troll, ignore him. Frequently gets roasted over at du too.
    For anyone still gleaning actual information from this thread, unless all of your games have the proper title id, dumping them all into the root, assuming you have a lot of games, will result in long scan times, which can lead to crashes, or reboots to menu before all games will load. That's why they recommend using the same directory structure as your sd. Of course TX aren't going to mention the bugs or crashing bits, lolol.

    As far as the exfat debate goes, the issue is with Nintendos exfat drivers themselves. Using an exfat hdd circumvents this issue whilst being able to install >4gb files to a Fat32 formatted sd card. Using cfw or ANY installer is homebrew, thus will eventually likely corrupt your card. Again, this is specifically Nintendos exfat drivers at fault, not exfat in general. My exfat card corrupted using a usb installer, personally.
