Hello everyone,

I am very sorry if my question has been asked a hundred times before but I want to be 100 % sure
on how to do it. So in August I bought a second Switch that is being used solely offline - it
never connected to the internet when I started modding the console, personally I dont even care about
being banned since this console is only being used for offline purposes.
I don't know why but I did not create a NAND-backup - many of you guys advice thoroughly to do it
and I think that it is absolutely essential.

Excuse my nooby question and let me ask:

If I have games installed on the internal storage of the Switch, do I need to delete them so the internal storage
is completely emtpy or could I proceed in creating a NAND-backup with games installed on the internal storage?
Is there any risk of doing a NAND-backup with installed games on the sd card (NSP'S, XCI'S)?

Once again a big thanks to all of you guys trying to help on this forum!

Any help is greatly apprecaited.

// should have been 'safe' instead of 'save' in the title, sry :P

So even if there is stuff installed on the sys-storage the NAND backup will still be the same as if there was nothing installed on it?(minus the fact, that my Switch is probably flagged by Nintendo, which I don't care about)?

Thanks for your fast response, really appreciate it!

    To make it even more economical you can add more vegetables
