I had a nand backup of my switch but it got corrupted on an external hard drive I had it on so I need to make a new one. I am having to move some roms off my sd card to have room and just need to know how much space is needed for me to put the nand on my sd card. Also if I delete games off nand will it make it smaller or is it same size no matter what?

thanks

The NAND is about 30 GB big. You can reduce the size when you compress the NAND to under 1 GB. Keep in mind that every game installed directly to the NAND will make your compressed NAND bigger. But the backup you create is always about 30 GB until it's compressed.

Yeah I got it already, thanks though.

But to restore the rawnand.bin has to be in one part or can it be restored in 2 gb 15 parts? I'm just curious because I don't have an extra sd card and the only one I have is 128 gb and I want to leave it Fat32 in my switch.
