Recently tried to update, something went wrong.
Decided to wipe the SD card and start again, and retain the 'Nintendo' file in 'Atmosphere'.
Updates are fine now, but 80gb of game are still showing on the SD card.
On the console, it says I need to download these games again. So, better to just delete them. When I try do this via software management, it shows each game not holding any space, so when I do delete them, no space is freed up.
These are not viewable on the PC, so I can't delete them.

Any ideas?
Thank you.

EDIT: And, if I just delete the 'Nintendo' file, what will happen? I have some games installed on the NAND, will the saved games associated with these be deleted too?
Also, I finally realised what Edizon was for, so I will use that in the future.

By "Nintendo file", do you mean the Nintendo folder?
