Hi,
I have on SD card on EXFAT with all my games already installed via atmosphere before the shops went down. Its working 100% except it wont launch PPSSPP. Therefore I am thinkin gof trying a separate SD Card for PPSSPP and seeing if that works but formatting ~FAT32.

how do i do this? do i have to reinstall the entire OS? I've never done this before so can't remember.

I didnt want to lose all my games mate.. everything else is working perfectly and it took me ages to install 500 gigs worth of games via NSPs. what i didnt wanna do is reformat it and PPSSPP still doesnt work so just bought a £15 128gb card instead

I mean the previous guy is right, albeit a little rude. You can just copy/paste to an internal drive to backup your sd card, no fancy way to back it up, it'll all work perfectly when you copy it back

1. if you are not using emunand, then just extract atmosphere, hekate and patches to the new microsd, then copy the atmosphere folder from the old microsd in case some config files are needed to boot the cfw or
2. just copy over everything except the folder with the biggest file size (probably Nintendo) where all the old games were installed

Don't use 2 SD cards, the connection between the board with the SD card slot on and the motherboard is a point of weakness and it'll break if you keep swapping cards.
