Hi all,

I have a 128gb sdcard that is partioned with emunand and i'm looking to upgrade to a larger sd card. is it just a case of formatting my new card to fat 32 and copy over or is it even possible with a partion?

Thanks for any advice, much appreciated!

I use this method in the past:
* Use a Disk Imager software (such as Win32 Disk Imager) to create an image of your old card
* Use that image on the new card. The new card's FAT32 partition will still have the old size. The emunand partition is intact.
* Use a partition manager such as MiniTool Partition Wizard to resize your FAT32 partition to claim all the unused space.

This does require that you have enough space in your PC to hold the old card's image, and if you don't already have the tools, you'll need to install them (they are free). There are pros and cons whichever way you pick; but it's just another way to do this.
