I have a new SD card now with a diffrent size now and would like to move all the installed games over. However I was not succesful when copying all folders from my old SD card to my new card. Is there a way to copy over all installed titles?
best wishes and merry christmas, borax_kid

Seems odd I did this very same thing over thanksgiving. Made a folder on pc copy all contents of sd card to it then copied back to new card and all was fine....

Did u put new sd card into switch before copying everything over to it? Don’t know that that step matters but I did do that

Yes i tried that.
it think that some files maybe got damaged in a restoring process, I think the only way would be only copying the games and not the whole system :/

is the old and new sd card exfat or fat32? if its exfat then it is possible some of the files were damaged which is why we use fat32 for sd cards

so format the new sd card to ntfs and then use this program to format it to fat32 and u may need to redownload your eshop games but your saves are stored on the device

If you're using emuNAND (as you should be), extra steps are required to transfer the emuNAND to the new card.

the cards are both formatted to Fat32.

Does someone know how i can restore the games without redownloading and reinstalling them?
