    Hi !

    Sorry if my message is not on the good discussion and sorry for my english too.
    I want to buy "Animal crossing" (physical version) but the only back up is on the switch.
    I would like to know if there is a way to make a back up on an external support (hard disk or USB key) ? I've been searching, but I can't find anything :(
    If "yes" could you give me a link to know how to do it ?
    Thank you for all you do for the players !!!

    I think you mean NAND backup right?
    if yes take your sd card out and put in your PC/Notebook. There should be a folder in the root called "backup". Just back up that

    Hi !
    Thanks for the answer.

    In fact, what I'd like is to be able to save a switch game (Animal Crossing) that doesn't offer any other save than that of the Switch on a HDD or an USB Key...If it's possible.

    Like I understood,

    You will get a physical Animal crossing right? So the game save will be on your switch.... You can easy backup the game save with tools. Im sorry I dont know where the problem is

    I read your fist text again and you want something on a external device(HDD/USB) a backup. But what kind of a backup? Gamesave or NAND?

    Sorry as I say in my first post I'm totally noob.
    I would like a game save : transfer back up of my save from Switch to an external support, if it's possible.
    Thanks for your help.

    Everthing is okay. Everyon has his/her first time :P like me

    So to make it more clearly now. You want to back up your current saves on a external device(HDD/USB) to avoid the mix up with the animal crossing save, right?

    Does not your Switch have enough free space for keeping all game saves and animal crossing save?

    No, in fact I want to have the possibility to transfer my Animal Crossing's save from my Switch (when I'll have the game) to an external support (when I want) because I don't want to lose hundreds hours of gameplay if my switch crashes.
    Nintendo says there will be the possibility of asking customer service to retrieve a save from their cloud but I don't trust them, not to mention that we'll probably have to wait and provide proof of the Switch change

    Ahh okay I understand now, sorry

    I think it isnt possible too say direct where the save should be saved. Look in the data setting in your switch maybe there is something(I would do it by my own but my switch is burned since 3 months) The only option is that I got is, you need to save it everytime by own with the save manager tool. Then you need to backup it from your SD-card
