    So I've just gone and purchased a 64gb sd card for my 3ds. But I already have rxtools and a few games running off a 32gb.

    My question is really I don't want lose anything and I don't want to have to remod so how do I go about transferring everything over to the 64gb, including emunand.
    I already have backups of the emunand and sysnand made with EMUnand9, so what's the process for migrating it all over?

    Read the thread. You just resize it afterwards to the rest of the freespace. It's exactly how it's suppose to do :)

    Or format emunand with new card in your 3ds. Then inject backup into that emunand and just copy everything over drag and drop.
    When emunand created with gateway just switch off console so it doesn't create another Nintendo 3ds folder then restore emunand backup and copy the contents of your old card to new one

    It works, I followed the guide to upgrade my SD card as well. I got a ton off adware from the downloads though. I wish there were better free programs that could do the same things.

    I did this from 64gb to 200gb card and worked great you can keep your old card as a backup.

    Well that didn't work, after nearly 2 and a half hours easeus says there's an error with the partition table

    Any other ways to just copy off over my nand backup
