    Well it is possible but very tedious, you need to use homebrew ftpiiu everywhere, (Requires mocha cfw first) You would have to use a ftp connection to copy all the data from a usb to your pc. Since there is no file manager for wii u yet, this is the only option i know. But again, tedious, FTP is very slow, so you would be waiting awhile depending on how much you need to back up.

    I been asking for a file manager homebrew so stuff like this is simple and easier so is either wait for one to be made or the thing i said in the first paragraph. Hope it helps enough. :)

    Is that I'm scared. Because I do not know how much life is left to my hard drive and I have to prevent rather than regret:unsure:

    No one never knows how much something will last but that is how life is. You could format another USB on the wii u and then use the settings to copy to it. It should be faster and less tedious to do. :)

    Either that or wait till a file manager is made, you can use the ftp method but again will take long cause ftp is slow.
