    Hello,
    I have some legit (not nsp !) big size games and update on my SD (like bayonetta, RE revelation 2, Doom, wolfenstein ect) these games take a lot of space and I would like to store them on my PC to be able to put them on my SD later when I would want to play them (the re-download is not very practical ...).
    I navigated the files but impossible with all the folder's names and stuff.
    Is there a software or a method to navigate and to know which folder or file to copy ?
    Thanks

    (Sorry if this is not the right place but maybe there is a software to help me?)

    Who really knows where ?
    There's a tool called SD to NSP Dumper which you can use (it's a PC tool so no need for hacking)

    I don't want to convert it to nsp. In fact, I want to know which folder is for whitch game (legit games and updates) and put them on my PC to make some free space on my SD. And when I want to play these games, simply put again the folders on my SD.
    Sorry if it was not clear

    To know which folder is which game : You can use hactool to decrypt the sd card files (NAX0) but it'll require you to dump you prodinfo to get your sd seed. Plus other steps. Or just compare the size of the files with games size
    Or just copy the whole nintendo folder but you'll move your screenshots,videos and some other data to your PC.
