When your switch has downloaded an update follow these instructions:
Cancel the update dialog
Press the power button till it shows the power options
Select power down/off
Wait till it is completely off
Go into maintenance mode
Reboot with power button


Otherwise your switch might update.
After this you can use the maintenance mode to factory reset your device (this won't change the fw)

Joycons dont carry updates. They are just Bluetooth controllers. Your fine.

    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You take forever

    She's a woman that gets things done most have big strong men over to accomplish things

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    install done
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    start setting up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    the setup is taking too long
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    So you give up already? If you just want to just play games, not setup for game covers, details, etc; then just use PC emulators alone by they self. Example "Nestopia" or "Project64", etc
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Couldnt finish setting it up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And if you ask i downloaded it from steam
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Kids be like I want it now
