So I haven't really messed with my WiiU since modifying it in March and I'm a bit out of the loop.

I've noticed that redNAND is no longer recommended and I would like to remove it from my system.

BUT, I don't want to lose everything...

Can anyone help me through backing up everything IF possible, and restoring it to sysNAND.

I created 3 profiles and all game saves in redNAND. I'm sure I can access the save games through FTP (I've done that in the past, but can't remember where to look anymore) But not sure about profiles.

I know I can do NAND backup, but I have no idea if I can restore that from one type to another.

Thanks in advance. I really hope I can sort this out without losing data.

Once this is complete, I will use Kafluke's guide in the future.

P.s. I searched the forums first and couldn't fine definitive answers on how to do this. (Plus I really haven't jogged my memory yet)

*EDIT* I've managed to find out some more information myself. But is there a list of what each folder of the software is storing?

It all depends on how many saves you have as to the method I'd recommend but yes, you can backup all your saves and they are profile specific.

I just use saviine but you'll have to boot each game, dump the save one at a time to PC and then move it to a folder on your pc saying something like "Claras Mario Save" or something like that. Then start the process again with the next save and so on. Once you have them all saved on PC you can ditch rednand and then inject them back with saviine following the same process... launching each game in its respective profile on the Wii u.

Works great but can be time consuming. I know you can do it faster with ftp but I don't know that process and saviine has always worked for me

Thanks for the reply, great information :) But do you know how I can keep the existing profiles?

You might just have to make new profiles on sysnand. Unless you have it linked with rednand

Perhaps so. I keep seeing Linked references, yet I have no idea what It means technically. I'm assuming that mine aren't Linked as I don't see the redNAND created profiles while in sysNAND.

    That's some 5D math that only makes sense in America.

    Its different prices per state because state taxes are different, Cali taxes are higher than most, its has nothing to do w min wage.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It does at the end of the day because they'd demand more and go on strike

    You admit the corporations charge more because people can afford it, not because it really costs more, right?
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Yes companies look at average costs of what people can afford to sale products

    And there's no competition?
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Competition in companies here are like crazy
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Sure but competition does the same if anything at lower rates because they don't have the same resources
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Usually like a 10-20% difference

    I was told the market would "self regulate".

    Of course they would, both your parties are spineless corporate stooges.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    What about companies that are nationwide. Do you think they charge in that states stores based on state economic situation. No they charge the same, but taxes per state make the price difference. (Exception maybe Alaska, Hawaii)
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Once you minimize cost of living a $500 gaming console could feel like a $1,000 console to a average home

    I have a family member that lives near the Ohio/Kentucky border in Cincinnati, Ohio, he goes across the border to Kentucky to buy most things because they're sales tax is lower in Kentucky.

    I went down there last summer and helped him run electric in a pole barn he built, and he saved over $300 buying electrical supplies at HomeDepot in Kentucky instead of in Ohio. Weird but true.
