Greetings!

I haven't messed around with CFW on my Switch in a while, so I was wondering what the proper way would be to go about the following:
1. Creating an exFAT partition for use with Atmosphere and other switch files.
2. Creating a FAT32 partition for creating an emuNAND.
3. Creating a FAT32 partition for use with Lakka/RetroArch as a dual-boot.

Thus far, I have used Minitool to create:
A ~90GB exFAT partition for Atmosphere, etc;
A ~30GB FAT32 partition for emuNAND;
A ~5GB FAT32 partition for use with Lakka/RetroArch

I am uncertain if this is how you are supposed to accomplish this, so anything that would help point me in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Should have just made them all FAT32.
