Is there any way to back up my Wii U formatted external hard drive?

    I have a bunch of Wii U stuff installed on my external hard drive, but I don't have the original installable files for them.

    If I'm not gonna use the Wii U stuff, I may as well use the external hard drive for something else....

    Like RetroArch and Nintendont.

    Only way I could think of is to get another hard drive and copy your original one onto that one

    I'm planning on doing just this (using the Wii U to copy over files to another HDD as a backup). But my next thought was, if my Wii U dies can I then use my HDD with a new Wii U? Or is it locked to my current Wii U, so I'll have to start over reformat the HDD and reinstall everything from the SDD if my current Wii U goes down?
