    So, I was told that I require 3.0GB in order to have Pokemon Sun/Moon in my 3DS.
    And, I require 900MB in order to do that :cry:
    I already erased all the things that I have in my SD's, but I want more space.
    I'm running A9-Luma-Hourglass CFW, and I was wondering, if I could take out any of these files in order to make more room in my SD, without harming my system.
    Not sure which must be there and which are safe to get rid off.
    Do you suggest me to create a clean backup of my Sysnand and then erase files from my SD? (By "clean", i mean both of my SD's without any software installed in it)
    I added a screen capture, so you can see the files in my SD.

    Thanks in advance.

    I own two 16GB SD's.
    No, I don't take many pictures.
    And yes, I have a backup from when I first hacked my 3DS, which was 2 months ago.
    I tried to make a backup of my emuNAND but Decrypt9 did not worked, and Hourglass is telling me that my memory is not formatted for that matter.
    Is it enough with a SysNAND backup?
    BTW: without the files9 folder, I only have 12.4GB of space.

    Ah, thanks... I'm ok with my emuNAND (I can't make a backup neither with Decrypt9 nor with Hourglass anyways)
    Thanks for replying.
    12.4GB should be enough to hold Moon and Sun :)

    Back up files9 to your computer and you can get rid of it. Make sure you keep it on your computer! Then you can get rid of the cias folder and screenshots_raw.

    Already did :D

    So, files9 is the one that matters?
    Also... I have FBI & Luma installed on my 3DS as cias...
    Is OK to delete them from my 3DS folder (the FBI.3dsx & Luma.3dsx) or are they required to launch as .cia?

    Edit: Also, nice picture Boogieboo6.
