    no cause I think the nand file is about 520mb and the key's file would be overwritten

    you could do 1 backup and then store the nand and key files on your PC (or laptop whatever you use) and then do the other Wii

    ok thanks for your input, more from others would also be appreciated. and if i were to backup to a 2gb or an sdhc? would it still overwrite or delete the first one when preparing the sd?

    Just move or copy the backup elsewhere on the card. 1GB might be too small to house both, but NAND is supposed to be 512MB - since its a block level backup 512MB x2 = 1024MB (aka 1GB). Also most SD cards are actually smaller capacity when formatted due to bad cells and file system overhead, so it is unlikely.

    2GB should do nicely though - again you just have to rename the original file(s?) that bootmii backs up

    on a 2gb you'd have to copy the first nand.bin and keys.bin into a folder on your sd card and then make the second Wii backup but how are you gonna tell which is the right one for the right Wii???

    There's really no more feedback needed guy. You can't pick what it saves the file as. It backs up nand #1. It writes the files. It backs up nand #2, it over writes the previously created files.

    I know it's asking for a lot to just put the sdcard in a PC, or hell, even just run WiiExplorer and re-name/move them on the sdcard before backing up another.

    its best to make one backup. save the files. then make the other backup. save the files.
