    Hi, i'm new here.
    I recently followed the guide on 3ds.guide to install cfw onto my New 3DS XLs 4GB SD card. I realized 4GB is not enough for games though :(. I have a 32GB SD card and I was wondering if its possible to clone everything to the 32GB SD card without having to go through the cfw process again

    Between insane and insecure
    You literally just copy/paste everything from one SD card to the other.
    Just make sure the 32GB is formatted to FAT32 first.

    Yeah, just back up the data from the 4gb card into a folder on your PC (If you can't have 2 cards in at once) then insert the 32gb card, make sure it's FAT32 and just copy the data from the 4gb onto the 32gb and voila.

    Yeah just to confirm i moved from 4gb to 64gb after modding.

    Make sure it's FAT32 formatted and just copy every single file and folder over and it will be done.

    Wouldn't mind trying 128gb :)

    That would be really smart if using the freeshop. Plenty of storage for plenty of games. Can never "too many" games.

    I hear it works fine if you format to FAT32. I could do with a couple of 128gb cards to be honest need one for my Pi3 with Retropie.
