Your first 5 posts on the topic were irrelevant and an attempt to start an argument to get attention. We can all still see them.

The Data Management on the Switch is either unfinished or a manifestation of Nintendo's extreme paranoia about piracy.

Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. Shame for the OP really, the unnecessary flaws have caught him out.

@electrolite77 I believe it just says an SD card is required and 5 gb of storage on the Switch must be available as well. They should have on there what the file size is for the game. So an SD card with more space than what the game is, plus 5 gb onboard storage.

Haven’t you always been able to transfer data from the system storage to an SD card, or even a USB storage on previous systems? I don’t understand why its left out at the moment. Surely its something that would change. Especially when you have a game that requires 5 gb free on the Switch. If you were needing to free up some space it makes no sense to re-download a game you already have just to change up its storage location. The Switch OS leaves more to be desired at the moment with some basic features like that.

on WiiU you can transfer data from system to HDD and/or HDD TO HDD

So if you put the SD card in a computer are the save files not viewable? You can’t transfer it that way? Does the Switch format the SD card or something?

@TheLZdragon This article is about how you can transfer saved data, not the whole game. You still have to delete from internal storage and download the complete game on SD card again.

Definitely. Although as I said in my first post on this thread this wouldn't have been much of an issue if the save wasn't 5GB. The Switch would definitely check to see if there is enough space before it downloads a game. I don't think they thought to take into account the save file because usually they're less than 100MB. Really the eShop should be giving you a warning screen before purchase and stopping you from downloading it if you don't have a microSD card installed.

But again, we are talking about a minor inconvenience before being able to play a game in a way we would have thought impossible last year. So I'm struggling to find the outrage.

Actually the article is about how to transfer the whole game because you can't transfer save data. And the solution provided in the article is to delete the game from internal storage and download the game again.

@maibhassin he could if he sweet talk NoA and say there's an issue and/or bug and can't play the game.

Do this. Although it'll be Nintendo Europe... It's worth a try. They're not evil.

Whilst an unfortunate chain of events not one to judge the whole system by (plus not a valid excuse for someone to chastise their choice in purchasing a Switch and making the wrong choice).

Although you do bring up an issue that relates to Nintendo in general regarding their restrictions in handling game data. I still get nervous knowing my entire Breath if the Wild data is stuck on the Switch itself and no back ups are possible. The Wii U had its issues too; the automatic saving to an external hard drive saw me loose all my Hyrule Warriors data when the hard drive failed. I'm just lucky I had copied my Xenoblade X and Tokyo Mirage data to my Wii U right when I finished them.

Although it does involve a game making a lot of headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Yeah they really should. More info the better.
