Hey there guys.
Switched from SXOS to Athmosphere some time ago.
Decided to completely start anew and delete the complete 400GB SD card and only keep the save games.
Switching worked without problems, and the newest Switch and Athmosphere version are running on my emummc.
But now I wanted to reinstall my games and the sd card size only shows 32 GB, even though the FAT32 size has been set to 333GB in the athmosphere settings.
Any ideas what I probably did wrong or missed? Can I still change it?

AFAIK the emummc will just take up 32GB, regardless whether you make a bigger partition or not.
Hekate will create a image/copy of your NAND (which is 32GB) and put it in the emummc partition as-is.
So when the Switch uses this image, it only sees the size of the image, which is 32GB.

So in the end, I still could install my games without problems, it only shows the wrong size, but will use the complete partition? I'll try and report back!

Nope. Did not work. I installed 3 titles, the sd card size decreases abd after that, every install fails, because of not enough storage space. Help, pls.

You checked to see if the SD card is fake or not?

I found my problem: still hat a lot content in the Emutendo, and since Athmosphere does safe all the stuff in the EmuMMC, I could just remove the Emutendo folder and the size was correct again. Silly me.
