Reddit Thread: SD Card upgrade is more difficult than it should be.

  1. Use Disk Utility to create an image of the smaller SD
  2. Format the larger SD on Mac as FAT32 (Disk Utility -> Erase -> FAT (MS-DOS))
  3. Mount the image you created on step 1
  4. Copy everything, with all attributes, to the larger SD, using Terminal:

    sudo cp -a /Volumes/SmallerSD/. /Volumes/LargerSD/.

    Don’t forget the periods! And don’t worry if you get an error like cp: SmallerSD/.: unable to copy extended attributes to LargerSD/./.: Operation not permitted

  5. Test in your Switch!
