    I've had my Wii U game saves vanish on me 3 times now over the last few months. I am able to restore them through SaveMii (luckily) but it's just not practical for me to back them up and restore them every time I want to play a Wii U game. I have my doubts but has anyone else has this experience or know how to keep it from happening?

    Hello,

    @NoSoul81 :

    You have been seeing in the settings of the Wii U ==> "Data Management (USB)", if they were always present ??

    I actually haven't that's a good idea. But I've already restored them right now and they're working. I'll check next time.

    I'm starting to suspect it has something to do with SaveMii. Maybe when I backup the saves they're getting deleted or something.

    Yeah with Star Fox Zero I restored a save last night and it was back to normal and I just checked it in data management and there's a save but I just played it now and it takes me back to training like I'm just starting the game, forcing me to restore the save again.
