    Hello everyone!
    I tried to use Retroarch on my Switch (Stock NAND + Atmosphere) a few months ago, but due to some crash when loading the roms from the sd the card was corrupted and I had to reinstall all my nsp backups. At this point I'm not willing to put Retroarch along with the other games and take the risk again, but I've seen there could be other ways to set this up. If I'm not wrong basically I just need another SD card and plain install Atmosphere and Retroarch or put Lakka in it and launch from Hekate.

    My question is, is there any difference between these two methods? Do Retroarch via ATM and Lakka both run at the same performance? If I load Retroarch through HBL, will the lack of installed games cause any issue with the main menu, and will I be able to lauch the backups when I swap the sd back (I think this last question would be more like, can I use multiple sd cards and swap them)?

    Thank you

    If you were using exFAT when it crashed, then that is your real problem. Stick with FAT32 and your SD card will not corrupt.
