    So most of the question is in the the title but I’ll add the details here.
    Well I got a vita on Hankaku 3.60 working with sd2vita and I want to change to a bigger sd card what do I need to do?
    Ps I saw there was a thread with a guide about this issue I don’t know if it was exactly what I need and it’s a bit complex for me lol

    well if you got everything working with the vita and sd2vita. all you need to do is copy everything from your current microSD in your sd2vita to a bigger microSD. make sure you have unhidden files what what not.

    you mean simple copy paste?
    like taking the sd card from the vita copy everything on it including hidden files to the pc and from it to the new sd card by the same process (simple copy paste) and it should work ?
    follow up question i need to completely shut down the system before i take the sd card out?

    if the SD card you are replacing it with is 200gb or above make sure you select a cluster size of 64kb when formatting, smaller size SD cards can be formatted with default cluster size

    make sure you have show hidden files shown etc like when setting up the original SD2Vita SD card, and just copy and paste it all across on your PC to the new SD card, done

    yes you need to completely power down the Vita before removing the SD card
