I guess I better pay for Nintendo’s backup service. Which angers me, because that really should be free.
And because I need to get it off my chest how stupid I was and so others can mock me: I wanted to get a screenshot off of my Switch to show someone. Turns out you can’t without Twitter or Facebook. So I just shoved the SD card into my laptop without thinking about it. Except the Switch uses Micro SDs and my laptop has a full size SD card readers. But the thickness is close enough that the thing wouldn’t just fall out. No amount of shaking or fishing with a paperclip would work. I opened up the laptop, and ruined the SD card reader (I will never use it anyway) to get it out. Put it back in my Switch, but it won’t read it. Pulled out the SD card and the top half just broke off. Guess I damaged it in the process.
Luckily it appears saves are all kept on the main system’s storage even when the game was on the card. So I don’t think I lost anything important. Just to be safe, I better pay Nintendo. Bastards.
