You can reformat the bootable SD to use as a normal SD, but that is not recommended."
Is there any reason you recommend keeping the sd card in the bootable state versus saving the backup on your computer and then making a new bootable card as needed?
And just to make sure I'm getting this right, you mean I can make a baseline backup (separate from the stock rom backup) and save it on my computer and use that to make a bootable card? Sorry if I'm getting this confused.
No, you do not quite have it right.
I'm saying not to keep that 64GB as your bootable SD. I'm saying save the stock backup files you made to your PC. You can make a new smaller bootable SD per the original instructions and transfer the stock backup files from your PC to that new SD. Save that one instead of wasting that big 64GB card.
I say save it instead of making a new one later as the new one later may not boot properly (these things are finicky) and the original one you know worked.
