    Just something I noticed today after moving my preexisting sysnand installation of Mario Kart 8. Details follow.

    I bought a Wii U with MK8 installed from the factory as a bundle. I modded my Wii U and am now running on Rednand.

    Today, some weeks later, I decided to move MK8 from Rednand to USB. Once the transfer was completed, I noticed a empty "???" folder which didn't exist before.

    I ftp'd into the console and tried to figure out what it was. (Gave up hours later)

    After remembering that i was having sync issues for my Pro controller (That I bought after the modding was complete) and fixing that by syncing in sysnand I thought I'd try the same thing with the game (removing it in sysnand) lo and behold, that removed the mysterious empty "???" folder in system memory data management.

    My conclusion is that we obviously don't have complete access to settings etc in rednand, and perhaps this can help someone else out who's scratching their head at this "issue"

    I know that posting this really wasn't necessary, but just wanted to share.

    no idea about the ???

    But why are you using rednand?

    Haxchi and Coldboot Haxchi are better.
