    Hi,

    I have question since I ordered 512gb Samsung EVO Plus... How to transfer emunand (partition on sd) and content of sd card to new card?

    user win32diskimager to copy your whole memory card to your new memory card. Then use EaseUS partition master to claim the missing space on your new memory card.

    Did that method actually work? I want to move my current emunand to a new 512GB card. Thanks.

    Yes, win32diskimager clones your current sd card to the new as an exact copy. The extra space is blank unallocated space, with EaseUS you can extend the user sd card partition to the remaining space

    Thanks, in my case it was slightly more complicated because exfat volumes can't be resized. I did manage to get it working though.

    Don't use exfat, format it to FAT32 or you'll have high chance get your SD corrupted.
    And I remember EaseUs Partition Master can copy your whole SD or just a specific SD partition to a new SD, you don't need win32disk imager (yes I've done it 1-2 months ago for my emunand SD)

    The problem is that I use SXOS and a lot of the XCI files are larger than 4GB. I've never touched ReiNX or Atmosphere.

    Someone posted a new tool for helping with this the other day, it's on here somewhere. One option that I did though was to clone the card, then off move everything off the exfat partition to my pc, reformat it to a resizable fs (ie ntfs), then extend it to take up the unused space, and then convert it back to exfat and then everything back over

    Move all your files from the exfat to your PC, convert the partition to ntfs, extend it to take up the unused space, convert back to exfat, move files back

    Yes, I think that solution is better than mine. I deleted the exfat partition, created a new fat32 one to start after the hidden emunand LBA and then reformatted the new one back to exfat.
