    I have several games here that I have data for on my WiiU Internal Memory. I'm wanting to install the games using WUPInstallerGX2 onto my new HDD so it's easier for me to launch them without carrying a ton of discs around

    So far, I've tried loading Winderwaker HD from the USB, and I have a save for it on my Internal Memory but it creates a new save altogether and ignores the original.

    I tried to copy the original save over to the HDD, but it says that the software already exists on the External memory (Only the digital game is on there), and copying it over to the HDD will delete other data, so I'm confused.

    I'm going to install ALL 8 of my games here onto the HDD. How do I go about moving the saves over to the HDD to use...? I don't want to copy them first, then install the Game yet because I don't know if the save will be deleted on the HDD XD

    Help would be appreciated :)

    I transferred all my saves to USB first and then installed the game to USB after and it worked fine for me.

    Well I actually just wrote myself a note regarding that XD I'm at the pub having a pint and had a thought...

    It read:
    'Copy windwaker HD save data to HDD. IF the game gets deleted. Try installing game to HDD again.

    If it works, do the same for all games.

    If the save is deleted. Fuck.'

    Thanks for the quick reply! The forum is as helpful as it was all those years ago :)

    The reason why it asks to overwrite the save when you copy it to USB is because that's where the game creates it's first save. Yes overwrite the save on USB because the system memory save is what you want right?

    There was
    There was no save on the HDD when I tried to copy at first , just the game data :) sorry I never made that clear!

    When I tried to copy the save data over it said that all data will be deleted so I don't know if that means the game too, which would be at stupid af, but Nintendo right? :rofl:
