The Nintendo Switch Lite is a popular handheld gaming console that has taken the gaming world by storm since its launch in 2017. The console is perfect for gamers who enjoy playing games on the go or in bed. However, one issue that users face with the Nintendo Switch Lite is its limited storage capacity. In this blog, we will discuss some tips and tricks on how to solve storage issues with your Nintendo Switch Lite.
Use a MicroSD Card
The Nintendo Switch Lite comes with 32GB of internal storage, which can quickly fill up if you download several games. The best solution to this is to use a microSD card.

MicroSD cards are affordable and readily available, making them a cost-effective solution. Browse our full Memory card range here.
Delete Unused Games
Another way to free up space on your Nintendo Switch Lite is to delete games that you no longer play. You can delete games from your console by going to the home screen, selecting the game you want to delete, pressing the "+" button, and selecting "Manage Software." From there, select "Delete Software" to free up space on your console.
If you don't want to delete a game but do need to free up space, you can archive it instead. Archiving a game removes the game's data from your console, but you can still access it later. You can archive a game by going to the home screen, selecting the game you want to archive, pressing the "+" button, and selecting "Archive Software." This frees up space on your console while still keeping your game data safe.
Use Cloud Saves
Another way to save space on your Nintendo Switch Lite is to use cloud saves. Cloud saves allow you to save your game data to the cloud, freeing up space on your console. You can access cloud saves by subscribing to Nintendo Switch Online. Cloud saves are also a great way to back up your game data in case your console gets lost or damaged. Nintendo Switch Online and its cloud services are a pay-for service, however the price for annual subscription is relatively low for extra space and downloadable content you get for the money.
Avoid Downloading Game Updates
Downloading game updates takes up additional space on your Nintendo Switch Lite. If you have limited storage, it's best to avoid downloading updates unless they're necessary. You can disable automatic updates by going to the home screen, selecting "System Settings," selecting "System," and turning off the "Auto-Update Software" option.
In conclusion, by using a microSD card, deleting unused games, archiving games, using cloud saves, and avoiding downloading game updates, you can solve many storage issues and enjoy your favourite games hassle-free.
