    Hello, currently in the Wup installer Y mod you can choose by installing titles to the NAND or HDD.
    What if i have 2 USB's plugged in ? and on of them hasn't enough space?

    If you have two usbs plugged in the wii u will prompt you to enter settings to move/copy data.

    The wii u can only use one USB at a time. If you have 2 plugged in the wii u will make you go into system settings to move/copy the games from one to the other.

    You can play games from both but the console will only allow you to use one at a time.

    Using one HDD to play backups, each time.. not both at once.

    Yes, you may only have one usb hdd/device plugged into the wii u console for playing games from.

    You may have multiple HDD/Device tied to the Wii u. but if two are plugged in it will only allow you to copy between them. Not play games.

    So if the game you want to play is on one drive and not the other. You must only have that drive plugged in: not both.
