    DumpsterU - Wii U Harddrive Dumper
    DumpsterU makes it really easy to dump your installed contents with very high speeds.
    You can dump your saves, games, updates and DLCs straight from your Wii U-formatted harddrive to your PC.
    It will dump decrypted contents that you can use with Cemu or other applications.
    You need a OTP and SEEPROM backup from the console the harddrive was formatted with. You can get the backup with Wii U NAND Dumper.

    Usage
    Select your hardrive from the list and open your otp.bin and seeprom.bin.
    A list with all the games installed to that harddrive will open.
    Tip: You can press Ctrl + F to search or click on one of the headers to sort the list.
    Click on the title you want to dump, select an output folder and press on one of the buttons to dump the contents.

    Download
    You can download DumpsterU from the releases page.
    Currently Windows and Ubuntu builds are available.

    FAQ
    Where are my Wii VC saves?
    They are stored on the NAND and cannot be dumped by this tool.

    Why do I need my OTP and SEEPROM?
    The contents of the harddrive are encrypted and the OTP and SEEPROM contain keys used for decrypting.

    How fast is this?
    The 14GB from Breath of the Wild were dumped in 1:40 minutes. This depends on harddrive speed though.

    This is a really good application which I am sure many homebrewers will be interested in. Excellent work, as always! :)

    Woah. Does it mean that if I decide to upgrade my HDD to bigger capacity one. I can just dump and copy over to the new HDD? Does this support restoring dump to new HDD?

    Hello and thank you for this awesome Tool.:yay:

    Do I need something "Windows 10 Special" Software (like some Visual C++ Redistributable) too ?
    The Program did not open (Windows 10Pro x64)....:(

    No, you can only dump contents with that.
    You cannot restore anything yet.
    It is really useful for Cemu or for backing up saves from a bricked console though.

    Uhh you shouldn't need anything else.
    Can you try to start it from CMD and send me the console output?

    Nice. Thanks you for making all these awesome releases lately. Is it possible to make software that can do that or is it asking too much?

    Currently wfslib does not support creating new files in the filesystem but I may continue development on it to add that functionality.

    If that becomes reality, that would be really convenient for everyone. Looking forward to hearing good news. :)

    Thank you that is what I wanted.
    That is really weird it works on my machine and it works for all beta testers...
    Did it ask you for admin privileges?
    Do you have any antivirus enabled that might be blocking it?
    Do you have another system you could try it with?

    Thank you.:)

    What I have tried:

    - installed on C: or D: Drive for ALL Users as recommended
    - run the Tool of course as Admin
    - re-start PC after Installation
    - only using Windows Security Center/Anti Virus - all is disabled (Real Time Protection/Manipulation Protection/Folder Protection and so on...)


    Try it on another PC.:)

    It should ask for admin by default.
    Did that admin prompt come up when starting it without admin?

    Sorry, I have no idea what is wrong here...
    You could try installing the gtk3-runtime-3.24.18-2020-05-19-ts-win64.exe from here.
    Make sure to check 'Add to Path'.
    This shouldn't be needed though since the gtk binaries are bundled with the installer.

    Nice!
    However, will the dumps be encrypted for reinstall with WUP Installer later on? Or just the raw stuff for use with Cemu? Because I was interested on making a backup of my current HDD in case it fails, but not for use on PC.

    It only dumps them decrypted for cemu use.
    You can pack them with NUSPacker, you would need to backup your tickets though.

    At least something!
    I'll look into that.
    I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
