    I turned my WiiU on as usual, launched mocha cfw and plugged in the usb HDD, but in Mocha for some reason it had forgotten the wifi settings completely.
    I went to system settings and added my wifi network+dns, when I went back to the main menu all the games installed to my USB weren't there anymore!
    Now every time that I try to plug in the usb in mocha the light on my usb hdd blinks as usual but no games show up.
    The WiiU detects the USB.
    When I go to system settings and go to Copy/Move data it gives me an error.

    Is there anything I can do to get my BOTW save file back?

    Dump .tiks using tik2sd [I can bet that you're talking about redNAND]
    Insert dumped tiks via FTPiiU everywhere outside redNAND [sysNAND]
    Reboot Wii U and plug your HDD in, if games show up, then probably redNAND started corrupting itself.

    yeah, he was talking about redNAND.
    he tried to access his hdd with ftpiiu, but the drive is not seen/mounted.
    I don't know if he can recover his files.

    He disabled redNAND, and is now using sysNAND. Though, he will have to play from the beginning again.

    To anyone reading this :
    BACKUP your savegames regularly !
    ftpiiu or saviine is maybe a little annoying, but you'll be glad to have a backup not so far your lost game progress.


    He asked that I close his thread, he "fixed" his problem by using sysNAND. (redNAND is really not a good idea, so unstable. Please, don't use it as your main working environment)
