    Why do you guys like PSVD? Just because you can or you use the gamecard slot often?

    Isn't it a pain for FTP'ing stuff instead of just popping out microSD and transferring from a computer for faster io?

    I'VE A 128GB, since many games has also Switch ports, there's really no point to get a bigger one.

    Nope, you can mount the ux0 partition via vitashell, so technically you never need to open the vita. The PSVSD open up the SD2Vita for something else.

    right but isnt it painfully slow be it ftp or usb mode from vitashell, vs. popping out the sd card and transferring directly from computer?

    You don't have to use FTP. VitaShell has a USB connection option.

    64 when I still had one, never actually filled it up but it did always feel tight (in great part due to my 36 GB and counting photo library)

    Still using my official Sony 32GB card, with plenty of space. Why would anyone need more?

    actually, a usb connection through vitashell has a bug. the pspemu folder will appear blank. I discovered this when using psp content manager. you can alphabetize everything in adrenaline instantly. the app only needs to look in a folder with a similar structure as the psp, so use the pspemu folder as the base/root.

    I tend to manage my space like this as well and delete games I don't play anymore and add the ones I play when needed. I store anything big on hard drives.

    I have over 100 physical Vita games, plus a ton of digital purchases so that almost fills the 400gb PSVSD

    which leaves 256gb SD2Vita for PSP/PS1 games and old rom packs, it's really nice having so many years worth of video games I have loved playing on in the palm of my hand!

    I transferred them to the SD card before installing into the Vita, if i ever need to transfer anything now the USB cable via Vitashell is fine.

    if i do upgrade microSD card size down the road, I just copy contents from existing to new ? Do I need to refresh LiveArea data if I havent added anything new from the previous microSD after doing a transfer?
