    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this question has been asked before (I used the search function and I didn't find any threads related to this subject).

    I have SX Pro and I am running out of space on my current micro sd card (128 gig) so I am going to buy another micro sd card.

    My question is, how do I get my SX OS on my new micro sd card (I'm already laughing at myself for asking this question lol)?
    Is the easiest way to drag and drop the files from my current micro sd card on my new micro sd card? Or is there something else I should do?
    And if I do this (drag and drop), will I have any issues with my SX OS when I load my old micro sd back into my Switch (when I want to play different games).

    And yes I know buying a larger micro sd card would solve my problem lol

    Thanks in advance! And I look forward to hearing how others have dealt with this issue

    Sometimes the most obvious answers are the ones you never think of lol

    I was hoping to hold off buying a new micro sd card until Smash came out, but with Mario Party and Cities Skylines coming out, I cant wait anymore

    lol I knew right away when I was creating this thread that the answer was going to be something basic / I already knew what to do, but I wasn't 100% sure.

    And I figured I can't be / wasn't the only who person who had this question before, so I figured, why not create a thread.

    I'm a man of the people lol
