Moving Cloud Save data between a primary Nintendo Switch and a secondary console can be a time-consuming annoyance. Thankfully, you can automate the syncing process and keep save data up-to-date on both Switches—even in Sleep Mode!
First, navigate to your Nintendo Switch’s home screen. This can be done by quitting your game or pressing the Home button on your right Joy-Con controller. Then, in the toolbar, select the gear icon to open the System Settings menu.
Scroll down and select the “Data Management” tab.
Choose the “Save Data Cloud” option found at the bottom of the list.
Choose the user you’d like to modify.
Select the “Settings” tab.
Finally, turn on both “Automatic Save-Data Backup” and “Automatic Save-Data Download.” You’re all set!
Your Nintendo Switch may require you to manually download and upload a cloud save for initial setup, but after that, any Cloud Save compatible titles will automatically sync their save data across all your Switch devices!
