Upgrading to a new MicroSD card on the Switch is usually a straightforward process, however for CFW users running emuMMC there’s a few more steps to take depending on your setup. Migrating your data is a process of copying and pasting, but the hurdle of moving your emuMMC partition from one card to another could be confusing for many people out there looking to retain their console setup. This tutorial will show you how to back up your old MicroSD card, set up your new MicroSD card, and bring over all of your data along with your emuMMC setup.

This will require a modified Switch along with knowing the basics of how to navigate it.
