    OK, so currently, I have a 64GB MicroSD in my N3DS XL. I am getting a 128GB to add Roms and more Games. Will it be good right out of the Zip, or do I have to get a few Options Selected to go from 1 Size to another?

    Was told in order to Copy everything, including the EmuNAND and so I wont have to redo everything on it, to use this App. But I am wondering if I need any Options Selected or if it is good as
    Select Drive
    Select Backup Location
    Wait till Completion.

    Actually you don't have to use any tools. Just copy everything to the new sd (you might need to format it to fat32)
    My experience: bought 128gb for 2ds. Worked out of the box. Only thing I needed to do was copy all games and settings and everything from old sd to new sd.

    Isnt the emunand formatted to a different partion on the sd card? If so you would need to copy the partion onto the new sd and then copy all the files like you regularly would.

    Emunand in some implementations isn't even a partition, it uses allegedly unallocated space

    Anyway, if you were using the recommended configuration for A9LH or B9S and aren't using a gateway card, you won't even have an emunand (whose usage brings a number of disadvantages), and it's generally recommended to just take your mods to sysnand!

    Somehow missed the EmuNAND part. I gues that you would have to duplicate the old sd to your new sd. Dont know how.

    Yeah well, I dont think the App is the way to go. Just tried doing a Recovery to put everything in the Image on the 128GB Card...........now my Computer is thinking it is a 64GB Card and Formatting is not working correctly.

    Edit: Aaaahhhhh. EaseUS. How I love your App. Now just need to figure out how to get EVERYTHING on the 64 put on the 128 >:(

    1. Insert old SD card into PC
    2. Copy old files from SD card to safe place on aforementioned PC
    3. Wait for files to copy from old SD card ==> PC
    4. Remove old SD card from PC
    5. Insert new SD card in PC
    6. Copy old files from PC to your new SD card
    7. Wait for files to copy from PC ==>new SD card
    8. ???

    Actually, it seems I was using the right Apps, but not understanding it correctly.
    USB Image Tool: Once Opened, do NOT change any Settings. If in Volume Mode, go to Device Mode. Select Drive to Copy, and Select Backup. Enter a Name then wait. Once finished, put the new Card in and Select Restore and select the Image.
    EaseUS: Once the Restore Process is complete you will notice the Size is less than the new Card. Open EaseUS and find the Drive Letter for the Card. Right Click on it, and Select Resize/Move Partition. Make sure to Select the Middle Section's Right Side Adjustment, and move to the Right to encompass the rest of the Card. Select OK, then hit Apply.
    Should be good to go now. But to make sure, Run the Error Checking option through Windows (Right Click, Properties, Tools Tab, Error Checking, your choice to also select the bottom one).
    Not sure, but I think it would not be a good idea to use a USB Card Reader. Preferably, a Built-In Card Reader would be the way to go. I tried to copy over a few PSX Games, and I had problems with the USB Reader, but the Built-in worked perfectly.
