If you find yourself butting up against the confines of your Switch’s 32 GB internal SSD, or even the space provided by your additional SD card, if you have one, you can quickly free up space by archiving your downloaded software. This feature deletes games from your Switch without deleting either their save data or the game’s icon. That way, you can easily redownload the game from the home screen and pick up right where you left off.
Just head to System Settings > Data Management, then choose Quick Archive. Your Switch will then load your titles, complete with an indication of how much storage they take up and whether they are currently housed in system memory or on an SD card. If you see a game you want to delete, tap it. When you’ve selected all the games you want to delete, tap “Archive Data.” Bye for now, Tetris 99.
