    Is there an application for osx that allows proper copying of files and folders to a switch sd card? Currently folders created by osx arent detected on a switch at all. I can't currently run bootcamp or parallels unfortunately.

    There’s a lot of weirdness about Finder and SDs for Switch. Besides the junk metadata ._ files it creates, I find it corrupts files if I copy more than one concurrently (this could be a problem with my SDs controller though).

    You're welcome:
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-fix-sd-reading-problems-for-macos-users.510856/

    Commands to run and be 'safe' not to touch the 'Nintendo' folder, then would be:

    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/NAMEOFTHESDCARD/switch/
    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/NAMEOFTHESDCARD/retroarch/
    find /Volumes/NAMEOFTHESDCARD/ -name '._*' -type f -delete
    find /Volumes/NAMEOFTHESDCARD/ -name '.DS_Store' -type f -delete

    You could copy them into a shell script, make it executable (chmod +x) and run it every time before you unmount your usb card adapter.

    There is an option in Hekate -> Tools for clearing the Archive bit on all files. Use that to fix your problem. There's also a command you can run in Terminal to fix it (notimp linked it), but it's risky if it touches the Nintendo folder. My recommendation is to use Hekate since it automatically avoids the Nintendo folder.
