    Hi all,

    Great site.

    I just bought a Nintendo Switch and got Atmosphere installed, everything is running great but my initial drive only had 64GB and I seem to run out of stock because of all the nsp files I installed.
    So I just bought a 400GB drive and I wan wondering how I can transfer data from the old sd card 64gb to the 400gb with needing reinstalling the nsp files.

    Thanks!

    files are usually just drag and drop unless you have a hidden partition on the sd card

    wait, a 400GB "drive"? as in hard drive? if you installed the NSP's in an emunand in your microSD card, then you have to recreate the emunand and reinstall the NSP's in the new microSD card. reinstalling is usually not a problem but save files are. use Checkpoint homebrew to create save files of your installed NSP's from your (emu)NAND and copy them over to your new microSD card.

    Were you using emuNAND? you can use the homebrew app called Checkpoint to backup your save files and put them into your PC. once you've moved all your stuff to your 400gb, you have to restore those save files (assuming you've reinstalled the nsp's in the new NAND/emuNAND)

    First question is do you have a emunand?


    If so here is what I did, of course use Checkpoint and backup what you can just in case. I am assuming SXOS and Atmosphere are the same regarding what you want to do, so this should work for you to.
