    So my son and I have been on CFW since this whole thing kicked off. We both followed the rules and stayed offline. He started having issues with his switch, games and homebrew crashing, files getting corrupted etc. So I say let's just restore your system, we've been hacking this for a while let's just clear up the junk, I'll backup your saves with checkpoint, and we'll start fresh.

    Well, after going through all that it turns out I can't relink his profile, he got banned and neither of us can figure out when or how long ago, so I still have my unbanned switch which also has his profile, is there any way I can move/copy it to an area on his system to allow me to restore these saves? He's got 100s of hours clocked in some if these games, or are we out of luck?

    Turns out checkpoint allowed me to restore the saves to his unlinked profile, so all is good, but this nro you suggested might be worth looking into for a alternate issue, thanks

    have you formatted your sd cards as fat32? or just format them as exfat? exfat do have bad issues with data loss and corrupted files.
