If you want to reset Nintendo Switch without losing games, you can choose only to reset your cache and keyboard. Follow the steps below to find the reset options:

Step 1. Go to 'Settings', and select 'System'.

Step 2. Find 'Formatting Options', and you will see four options to reset your Nintendo Switch.

You can select two of the four options that won't lead to losing games, including cache reset, which deletes saved ID and passwords, cookies, history, etc., and keyboard reset, which deletes keyboard-related data.

The last two options are related to the SD card and Console, which can delete all data in your Switch, including your games.

Suppose your SD card in the Console has game data, and you select the 'Format microSD card' option. You will lose all saved game data on the SD card.

In this case, EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can help you recover your SD card easily. You can follow the steps below:

Step 1. Open EaseUS data recovery software on your computer, which connects your Switch.

Step 2. Select the partition that stores the lost game data of your Switch, and click 'Scan' to view the deleted game data.

Step 3. Choose the deleted game data you want to restore and click 'Recover' to get it back.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can help you recover lost game data if you lose the backups of the game.
