Hello,

sorry if that issue has already been discussed here but i didnt really find an actual answer.

So at the moment I am setting up the Wii U of a friend for homebrew.

My question though is, is it possible to somehow copy the stuff I have installed on my hard drive that I have set up and use for my Wii U to the Hard Drive that is going to be used with his Wii U ?

As fas as I have read into this, this apparently seems to pose quite the problem which I didnt expect tbh.

If this however was somehow possible, a lot of time would be saved.

Hope you can help me with this and thanks in advance !

AFAIK Wii U formatted drives can only read by the console that formatted them, not any other Wii U or computer. You will need FTPiiU Everywhere on both consoles. Then you can use it to copy things from your console to a computer, then from your computer to the second console.

Oh ok, didnt know about that possibility but i guess that would fix it.

Thanks !
