    Hey, so just a quick question really. Haven't got a ton of space left on my SD card, would it be ok to delete the WUP files after installing them on the Wii U? Thanks.

    Yeah. As long as they all installed successfully, then they are already copied over to the system memory/USB device.

    You might want to backup the installation files to your PC so you never have to rip them again but yea, it's completely save to remove them from the SD card.

    btw in general install games to the usb and then move them to the nand through the data management interface. WUP installer can fail leaving you with lost nand space. Only use the nand for important stuff.

    might be in the import folder. that's the temp folder during installation. I'm not sure if it's always on the NAND or if it will be on USB if installing there, but I know it's on the NAND usually.

    I know, I'm suggesting they install file to their usb device instead of NAND because having to use ftpiiu everywhere is risky and can cause brick if you don't know what you are doing. By installing WUP files on a USB drive, you lower the risk.

    (Not referring to WUP files used for installing initial custom firmware and homebrew channel, those need to be installed to the NAND. Just referring to games)

    If it fails, reinstalling the game should clear the temp files, right?

    No. You need to go to the Wii Us settings, into datamanagement and look into the drive with the unneeded files. Then it should tell you there's garbage and ask you to delete it.
