    Hello,
    I have a quick question regarding importing game saves. I exported my game save of Hyrule Warriors to my SD card using System Config Tool in Rednand in order to modify values. The problem I am having now is that I am unsure of how to import the save back into the Wii U. System Config Tool has the option to Import from SD card, but when I select the game save within that menu, there is no option to import, only to select it and go back. Is there some other way to import it or is there a button to press that isn't listed? I'm not sure... And ideally I would like to stick to System Config Tool rather than install a whole new app or program like Saviine

    As for other way to import a save is using saviine.

    I too would like to know how to import the saves with sys config.

    Saviine works great! Why not just use that? It's what I always use to backup and move saves around

    It's annoying when you have to mass dump/inject saves
    Also injecting saves on console would be faster then over network in general.

    Yeah but it's not that hard and doesn't take very long and works 100% of the time.

    Well I ended up downloading and using Saviine to take care of this, and it worked perfectly. Still though, I find it strange that we are able to use System Config Tool to export game saves but not import them. I will keep an eye out if it becomes possible to manage saves through the console rather than the network. Thanks anyway!

    Not true, specific routers like to be picky and just won't work. I've encountered that a few times, and read tons of people reporting the same thing. It's easy when it does work though. I just wish we can inject saves on the system now that we have IOSU now and can edit titles and their files.

    Another thing that bugs me is that Saviine server does not work with Linux so I always have to wait until Im on my Windows computer just to use it.

    FTP Everywhere worked perfect for me. Works well with transferring save games from one Wii U to another Wii U.
