    I know it is adviced against but I have my reasons. Deleting many hundreds of titles via "delete save data" takes incredibly long and is tedious.
    I tried to delete my user account to delete all according saves. But for some reason I got an error. Saying "2155-8035" please try again later. if the problem persist try perform update

    So then upon recommendation I tried gold leaf to unlink account, and then delete it.
    That worked. However all my saves were still there!!! Horrible.

    I started thinking I can access my nand via NXMTP, and I found the "user\save" folder and the "user\saveMeta" folder. I moved all these files to PC and I rebooted the switch.
    Upon reboot, I see my reclaimed nand storage space, however, it still takes a long time to load the "delete saves data" screen.
    Because the switch still thinks I have savegames for them, eventhough they are not physically present.

    Now I know a factory reset might be a solution. But thing is I have a preference, to have all my icons in all software saved. I don't want to reopen my games. Which would A. Take a long time. and B. Create again new savegames which I don't want.

    So my question with this topic is, how do I remove the leftover savegames, or list thereof?
    I noticed that system\save also is present. But im a bit scared to do anything there. Would the switch techincally function if i moved some stuff out of there?

    Full screenshot of all files present:

    If I look 00000000000006b0 folder is the only one that has been edited anywhere recently (today)
    Since I tried creating a new save for a game to see if it had issue creating a new save with my new profile.

    Also does anyone know what this file is? it is 156 MB. I ask because I have 25.8GB free upon clearing my saves. I think it should be 25.9GB.

    If you say you have your reasons, I'm not gonna ask. However, you have been doing everything wrong.

    The quickest way is to simply use JKSV and delete the saves directly.

    I run JKSV and press on devices saves, it says no saves...
    Then I went back to my own saves.. and ALL GONE!! YES IT WORKED. whatever it did by checking for saves, It fixed my save registry.
