    You can have two HDDs connected at the same time for the purpose of moving data between them. (In fact, the Wii U will *only* let you do that if you have two HDDs connected.)

    thanks. can u clone the entire hdd instead of moving one game at a time? also, will this affect redNAND if I'm using another hdd afterwards?

    I don't think there's an option to move everything all at once. Not sure how RedNAND affects anything here, either.

    you can select more than one game to move to another hdd. there is an option to chose what you want to move, you can select all... and it will not affect the rednand, just do it in rednand .

    I'm trying to find a way to give my hdd a toggle switch. I have a usb selector for my wii u/wii, but I don't remember where I bought it.
