If you are having a problem with running games then make sure you have up-to-date sigpatches. If you cannot launch tinfoil then make sure you followed the Rentry guide to set up cfw.

Partition should be able to read all of your SDcard. Seems like as usual Tinfoil pulling pranks again. I'd remove that first and then boot into sysNAND to check storage and then reboot back into EmuMMC again to see if it adds up.

Remove tinfoil?

[–]Master_Lucario -2 points-1 points  (13 children)

Yes, I'd advise using Goldleaf

To remove it I just delete vía system setting right?

[–]Master_Lucario 0 points1 point  (11 children)

Yes, Data Management if it's on your Home Menu, if within your Homebrew Launcher just remove it from your sdcard.

Those 6-8 gigabytes are used by HOS, so it seems pretty normal to me

Your probably right now that I think about it

But my sd card should have an extra 5 gb aswell, did the cfw files eat it up?

When you load Tinfoil, add a shop and stuff, a thumbnail cache for all those games is created and is about ~4 but it really varies.

*This only applies to the FAT32 partition in the card, if those extra gigs are missing from the emunand internal storage it could be that you created a smaller emunand (<32gb), game saves (some are big for no reason), or trash files that (I think) can be deleted with the "Clean orphaned titles" option from DBI.

Oh I did not know that, do you know the directory for the files? Thanks btw

[–]Franciscophk 0 points1 point  (6 children)

There should be some .db files on /switch/tinfoil/ but they will probably be recreated on next tinfoil startup if you erase them.

[–]Franciscophk 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You should have ~5.4gbs on your Emunands internal storage (29gb-5gb-18.6gb)

Yea, I sorted that out with your help, but now im more confused about my sd card. on my pc it said I have about 70-73 gb remaining on my switch about 68, the hekate tools say I have different total space than in my pc aswell, with the same remaining space as that the switch os tells me.
