    Even after deleting games from the Switch, the titles id and pictures keep showing up in Checkpoint.
    There should be no trace anymore of those games on the Switch (I also checked the settings) but even after formatting the SD card, as soon as I reinstall Checkpoint, the old games show up again.

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you :)

    For example... with Checkpoint.
    Or EdiZon? You can delete them even in profile menu or data management.

    You will need to go into your switch settings and then into data management and then at the bottom of the list is delete save data you just scroll through and delete which ones you dont want

    Have you deleted all the backups from checkpoint itself before removing the saves from data managment?
    Plug the sd into a pc and remove all the backups you dont need from the checkpoint folder before removing the original saves and see if that makes a difference.

    ... I have never noticed the “delete save data” option. I’m kinda embarrassed now...

    Everything is ok now, thank you very much :)
