    I have installed 4 games on my USB drive for my Wii, via the WUP Installer

    I just bought a HDD and i would like to put all my games in there, however, i dont know how to do it, so i dont lost data during the transfer

    Is there a way i can Transfer all of my save files and everything to the New HDD?? or do i have to do something else?

    Assuming that your old drive contains only Wii U game saves and games, and you only want your target hard drive to have Wii U games and saves, you can simply connect them both to your console, and use Data Management in System Settings to move (or copy) your data between the drives.

    Since you said WUP Installer, you probably mean that you are using a USB thumb drive, and not actually trying to use your Wii's USB drive.

    Anyway, when you connect two USB drives, the system will pop up a box telling you that you can move or copy between them with Data Management. By default, when you move a game, the update/dlc/saves will go with it.
