    If you install a bad dump, nothing! you'll semi-brick your Wii U (IF IS IN SYSNAND) if is the title in USB, just format it.
    This happend one time, and i fixed my Wii U formatting it.
    Issue: always keeping saying "There is unused data, do you want to delete it?" (yes or no, always freezes)

    Always freezes in Data managament, asking "Unused data was found, do you want to delete it?" (If you select yes or no, anyway will be freezed, always loading) i leave it my wii u 2 days on and never stop loading in Data managament.

    And that problem can be easily fixed by then simply downloading anything from the eshop so just download a demo or anything else and then try to delete the unnecessary data and it will delete in a few seconds this has been discussed numerous times on the site. And for the record the problem is not a semi brick far from it. It's a bug in the data management screen that is fixed by simply installing something from the eshop.

    What? Crazy way? why? :I if Wii U have bad tickets/bad titles, i thought the only way is formatting the console (unless you have bad title in USB, just formatting again will be fine)

    Because as I said to remove everything that's not working just download a demo from the eshop go to system settings and delete data the unnecessary data will be deleted. Why format the whole system when removing the unnecessary data will fix the problem and you get to keep all the working games and saves ect.

    As I said before that problem has been discussed many times on this site and my method to fix it not only works but it's the easiest way to do things as you are only deleting the stuff that's not working and keeps everything else.

    I've got the same problem, some installs interrupted and wii u detects data to delete.
    On usb disk the problem disappeared when I installed games but on internal storage remains.
    So my question is: can I install a random game from sd to internal memory to solve or must it be the same game that previously failed installation?

    As I said before to fix this install ANYTHING from the eshop and it will fix the problem. Just pick any download it then delete the unnecessary data then you can delete the demo problem fixed.
