    Hello!

    I am currently waiting for my new sd card to arrive in the mail, but I have a quick question.
    Can I move all the contents of the sd card over to the new one by simply drag and dropping them onto the new one?
    I know you just have to move the license and boot over for sx os and thats that, but can I move the games and saves as well as home brew over as well without any issues?
    (I am referring to the Nintendo folder, Switch folder, and sxos folder)

    Thanks! I figured you could but just wasn't sure. I didn't want to transfer 60gb worth of data for it to not work :P

    The only thing you have to look out for is that the so-called archive flag is preserved, especially on the Nintendo folder. This happens automatically on Windows, but is a real pain on macOS. However, there is a Hekate functionality to fix the archive flags as well, just in case something does not work as expected.

    A follow-up question to OP's: What if I created an emuNAND on SX OS on a different partition for my microSD card? How do I copy that partition as well as the main one?
