Hey guys

I have a 64GB and a 128GB cards to use on my switch, i decided to keeps different games on each of them and use both, however, when i went to my smaller card, the games from the other appeared, so I removed those (Since i was connected to the smaller SD, now when i connect with the bigger SD, the same games disappeared :/

Is there a way to recover those without having to reinstall everything one by one? I'm guessing they're still there, it's impossible form me to delete something from the small sd card and getting it deleted from the big one.

Thank you very much

Probably easier if you just get a much larger card, instead of switching between the 64GB and the 128GB, soon or later you gonna run out of space on the 128GB also.

I got this one for 20 something euro. The 256gb ones were like double the price, so I couldn't afford one :(

So i though of giving this 64gb some use, but it's proving to be a headache :(

Is there a way to manage two SD cards at the same time without losing titles?

You could just not delete the titles from the home screen, that way the next time you switch to the other card the games will still be launchable. A bigger MicroSD is a better solution but if you wanna work with what you have then just don't delete the games that your console thinks are missing, they'll re-appear next time you plug the MicroSD in.

Does having the games disappear like this also remove the save data? I was so far in some of these games already :/

Nope, save data will still be there unless you explicitly choose the 'delete save data' option.
