    If I wanted to transfer everything from my 3DS SD card, would it be as simple as copy/pasting everything into a new SD card and inserting that card into the 3DS? I'd like to transfer to a larger SD card. A 64GB SDXC. I'm using Luma3DS Sysnand only

    If your new SDcard is SDXC, then you need to format it to FAT32.
    After that, it's only a matter of copy and pasting.

    I did just the exact thing this same morning. I use AL9H and Luma as well. I used the windows utility "diskpart" to generate a new partition (somehow the existing partition on the card had free space at the beginning) and Guiformat to format in FAT32.

    While copying the complete content of the old card I once inserted the new empty card into the 3DS, dunno if this is necessary.

    After copying the filed I used the 7zip function of generating an SHA256 checksum to be sure everything went fine although this is just me being a bit paranoid ;)

    Is it that simple even if we have an emunand on the SD card ?
    (I use A9LH with emunand)

    You must use a tool like 3DS Multi Emunand Creator to move the emunand separately.
