    If you download Wii U games, thay can be 20 - 30 GB large and occupie a lot of space on your HDD.

    After extracting them, for use with Loadiine, they are mostly much smaller. After doing this, does it make sense to keep the large original Files? Should i delete them? Can i convert the extracted data back to it's original size, if needed?

    I just remove them...I see no use in keeping them...I do keep the Loadiine files though....much easier to keep those vs those giant WUD files

    Yeah, this is what i'am also planning to do. I'am just asking myself, if this may cause trouble in the future, if other Loaders/loading methods become available.

    WUD to WUX shrinks the WUD to near loadiine ready size.

    Archivists would want to use that as there is no way to convert folders back to WUD yet.
