    Newbie here, trying to figure out a way to replace my wii u save files with someone elses. Is there a program that can accomplish this released yet? I thought I could swap the files with my external hd but didn't think that my computer wouldn't recognise it =/

    EDIT: (Doesn't even have to be someone else's save files, is there a way to swap my own save files with different ones?)

    Nope.
    When Nintendo created the Wii U they decided to leave out any way of copying Wii U saves. So you can't even back them up. (Maybe to an external HDD, I haven't tested, but that's encrypted though)
    It sucks for people like me who like to bring their save file to play multiplayer without starting all over.
    Until the kernel exploit is released, it's not possible.

    Yeah you can backup Wii Saves to an external drive however as you said it is encrypted not exchangeable with other saves as the OP requested.
