So I upgraded my SD card from 2GB to 4GB.
What I did was put my 2GB SD card in the computer & copied all the files on to the computer.
I then took the copied files & copied it again on to the 4GB SD card.
I would just like to know if this way of transfer is okay. Or should I have done it differently? So far it seems to be working fine. I'd just like to make sure. :)

Yeah. That's how I did it. The exact same # of GB too. You're fine.

Oh... well the first time I turned on my 3DS with the 4GB SD card inserted, all the apps I downloaded was still there. :) I'm just worried that the data might all of a sudden disappear because of the fact that it's copied. I'm not sure yet.
EDIT: Oh... Thanks @theblackdragon & @Retro_on_theGo :)

That's how Nintendo says how to do it. I did it for my bro and it worked.
