    Question, I have a hacked switched. I've seen we can set up a clean sysnand with a back up, and then also have the hacks etc.. on emunand.

    Is it possible to have a whole separate sd for sysnand and one for emunand or no?

    Also going about emunand, would I have to re download my homebrews etc to set that up?

    You can have two separate SD cards if you like but then you would have to shutdown the console and change the SD card every time you switch between EmuMMC and SysMMC. AFAIK nobody has been banned in SysMMC for having homebrew and EmuMMC partition on the SD card.

    Regarding your second question. Do you already have CFW in EmuMMC and want to move that to another SD card? Then follow this guide: https://nh-server.github.io/switch-guide/extras/transfer_sd/

    That's fine with me, honestly just want to play online but don't want to have to get another switch. So I don't mind swapping and having a whole sd card just for my legit stuff and well not legit. Dont really use my homebrew and not legit games, not that fun not being online lol but I dont want to also just get rid of cfw. So I thought have 2 sd would be great.

    Yes I am already set up on the latest atmosphere and update!

    You don't need a second mico SD card to keep your sysnand and emunand separate. As long as your sysnand is clean to begin with and you don't use CFW on the sysnand (and you don't go online with emunand), you won't get banned. It does not matter if the sd card you have inserted has emunand on it.

    I know that! Its just a preference thing for me, one micro sd for my sysnand and all those games and another with emunand and all those games/homebrew.

    Could be a dumb question, without a sysnand back up, screwed? Have to go digging through my external HDD's to see where I left it so I was just curious

    It depends. Have you used CFW on sysnand to install NSPs, LayerdFS, modify/restore saves? If so, you'll want to restore your backup before going online. If not, you should be fine.
    Another question is, have you gone online on your sysnand since you made your backup? If so, I would not restore the backup. Nintendo can see that your telemetry logs don't match and flag you for a ban.

    I've never made an emunand before so I believe my cfw is on sysnand and I have done all 3.
    And no my sysnand back up has actually never been used, I bought this switch for the purpose of cfw when I got it and as soon as I bought it I set up cfw lol so the sysnand back up is clean.

    If you haven't gone online, then you should be fine after you restore your backup. If you don't restore your backup, it's almost a guaranteed ban.

    Having a separate SD card for sysMMC and emuMMC is more work for no payoff. There was not, is not, and will never be any evidence that files on an SD card can lead to a ban. Not only does it have the potential to generate false positives, its also potentially a violation of privacy making it legally questionable. Also, constantly removing the SD card can damage the SD card connector which is fragile if you look at the number of people who have had it break. Lastly, emuMMC is just a copy of sysMMC so nothing needs to be redownloaded.
