Hi, I've been lurking in this community for a while but never need to post something until now. Hope someone can help. Here's my current situation:

I have a modded Switch running latest version of Atmosphere CFW. On it is 2 user accounts, 1 local which I use for my games and 1 linked with a Nintendo Account that came with the console (it was modded for me by someone else). I want to remove the Nintendo account as it is annoying having to choose the user each time I launch a game. Said modder no longer has access to that Nintendo account, nor do I communicate with Nintendo servers (90DNS). From what I found online, the only way I can remove this account is via a factory reset. How can I perform this, while still keeping my user data intact (ie. selective backup?)

TL;DR I want to factory reset the Switch and keep data belonging to one user intact whereas I completely wipe the other.

Any suggestions/links to similar threads would be appreciated. Thanks.

Backup the save data with a homebrew save manager.
