    Hello I have a small external hard drive that is almost full. I'd like to copy the contents to a larger external hard drive. What program can do this and does it include all the save data?

    Thanks

    you can copy games from the wii u itself. saves - you can dump them and should be able to restore them as well.

    Is it possible to have 2 external drives connected at the same time?

    not usable. the two hdds at the same thing is for transferring content. this should transfer saves as well. I had forgotten about that.

    So I can plug in another drive at the same time and copy all of the content?

    Yes, and that is the only way honestly, be aware of how PAINFULLY SLOW that process is. Depending on how many games you have.. that process could take up to a WHOLE DAY (24 hours)
