    I've run out of space on my SD card, would like to move my backup games to a usb drive and run them from there. What's the best way to do this? I'm thinking...

    1. uninstall game
    2. delete xci/nsp/nsx files from sd card
    3. copy files to usb hdd
    4. reinstall game

    but this would probably delete any saves or content with the game. Is there a better way to migrate them to the usb hdd and just re-point the current installation to a new place?

    Your save will make no difference if you have a game on sd card or if you have a game on external.
