    Is there way to this? Is there a folder that can be deleted in the Nintendo 3DS folder?

    emuNAND is stored on another partition on the SD Card. You'd have to delete that 1 GB "unallocated" partition in the Windows Disk Manage utility.

    The easiest and recommended way is to use the official SD Formatter: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/

    Click 'Options' and change FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT to ON.

    This will delete the emunand and all data on your SD card.

    Just backup the files, format the whole thing to get rid of emunand, then put the files back

    Your instructions are dangerous and will cause people to lose data, please edit your post. Disk 1 in some computers is C: - you would have them completely erase their computer.

    That's almost correct, it will refuse to format C: since it is in use but if there's another drive on the PC it will likely be formatted.

    Is there a way to delete emuNAND in the 3DS mSD Manager?

    So that I can remove emuNAND without unscrewing the back off my N3DS.

    You could use GParted (or maybe some third-party tool like Acronis or EaseUS) and just drag the FAT32 partition to the start.

    Would this work with the 3DS mSD Manager?

    No, GParted is a Linux program (and I use the burnable version that you can just run on a computer by itself, or in a virtual machine)

    You'll have to take the card out.

    I didn't like taking the back off at first either. After a few times it becomes really easy. Just use the top end of the stylus and pull up after loosening the screws. They way it is designed you can leave the back off while you mess around with things at your computer.

    The wireless transfer speeds are so slow that unless it is a really small file you are dealing with it is much faster to just pull the back.
