    Anyone use Samsung cards? Bought a 256gb. Formatted it to Fat32 and data are still corrupted. Switched to sandisk and everything is working fine

    It might be time for me to reformat my 400gb to FAT32 and get away from exFAT. The only problem is, I'm using emuNAND on it. *gulp* What is the easiest way to reformat to FAT32 and keep using emuNAND?

    nope
    By default, installed games (NSP or otherwise) on switch are split in system this happens on both exfat and fat32. (Installed NSP through USB of course)

    Samsung 256GB user here. I formatted using a tool separate from Windows' Built in formatting tool: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm No issues what so ever. Just make sure when you backup your data, that you do not back up what is already corrupt. Because it will be restored in a corrupt state to begin with.
