    The commands above are the wrong way round.

    As per the other Windows guide we need to set the archive bit only on the contents of the Nintendo/Contents/registered folder so the commands above should be

    sudo chflags -R noarch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/

    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/Nintendo/Contents/registered

    I haven't tested it on my Mac as i got fed up and used Windows to fix it in the end.

    I just did a little testing, had an issue where folders created on my mac were showing up as files inside of programs on the switch. I haven't tested this fully, but this should work, don't set the archive bit on the entire Nintendo/Contents/registered folder, rather just the folders inside of that folder, considering that, this should work.

    1. Copy all files etc you need to your SD
    2. In terminal run the following commands:

    sudo dot_clean /Volumes/SDVOLUME/

    sudo chflags -R noarch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/

    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/Nintendo/Contents/registered/*

    Let me know if this works.

    you don't need all of this anymore.
    just copy all the folders/files you need to your micro sd.
    start hekate on your nintendo switch, go to options, fix archive bit.
    then you should good to go

    I'm using the SD card from this guide on FW 5.1 on Mojave and trying to fix the software was closed because of an error



    I tried

    sudo dot_clean /Volumes/SDVOLUME/

    and got

    Failed trying to change dir to .Spotlight-V100
    Bad Pathname: Operation not permitted


    also
    sudo chflags -R noarch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/

    and got
    chflags: /Volumes/NX/.Spotlight-V100: Operation not permitted

    this worked
    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/SDVOLUME/Nintendo/Contents/registered/*

    also ran Hidden cleaner improved.

    HELP!

    The easier one and the best program I ever have is called: CleanEject for macOS. When you put them in there. Just click CleanEject and it will find your drive and click Ok and your usb will eject and run it on your Switch. Works AWESOME!!!

    Very lightly and works 100 percent perfectly. Try it!
