    Hey gbatemp, this is Bike-Fucker and I'm wondering how much space an o3ds 10.6 emunand takes up.

    Also, is the space taken up by the games installed on your emuNAND invisible, just like the emuNAND itself? If so, how does one go about finding out how much spaces the space that takes up?

    Thank you very much.

    EmuNand will take up about 1 gb... at least the backup will.

    Old 3ds emunand is almost a gigabyte, while new 3ds is a gigabyte and something more.
    As for the games, if a game weights 500mb, it'll take 500mb of your sd card.

    Will emunand with multiple video games on it also take up 1gb?

    Thank you very much.

    And Emunand will create a new partition that you can't see. So after format your SD card for emunand, it will appear ~1 go less than normal.

    EmuNand by itself (just the partition) is 1 gb. Everything else on it will add up on the sd card but the partition size will never change afaik.

    EmuNAND is ~1GB for an o3DS and will be a hidden partition at the end of your SD card. Games will be visible and easily backed up on the rest of the SD card.
