    I bought a Wii U but the transfer data will delete all my save files and Miis. So first I want to backup it to another SD , then use WiiU transfer and lately copy the backup to my Wii

    Yes, there is SaveManagerGX but its only copy one file D:. I want to something more automatically

    I think a NAND backup may be your safest bet, but don't go accessing the Wii Shop Channel after you restore your NAND post-transfer, as it will cause issues.

    Install Bootmii if you haven't and load it up from homebrew channel (start hb channel and press home button then select bootmii). Then use your wii power and reset buttons (wiimote doesn't work in bootmii). To do a backup. Then transfer your files. After the transfer use bootmii recover from a backup (the one you created). All your files will be back the way it was. For full instructions to use bootmii google it.

    That what I did, just nand backup and put it back on after the transfer done.

    This type of thread should really be posted in a Wii discussion subforum, not in the tutorials section.
