    Is it possible for a home brew program or any other way to move this file to another Wii?

    use geckoOS' rebooter or any number of system menu hacks to load the system menu with the option to move protected saves. the hack is called different things with different methods, just look for "no copy" and use that hack.

    Either with the GeckoOs rebooter, startpatch or preloader

    Waninkoko also released an app called Save Game Manager, that lets you extract/install save games.

    I believe the only catch is that you have to have a save file on the 2nd Wii to import the 1st save file into.
    (And they would both have to be softmodded)

    Preloader's hacks.ini file is by far the easiest way. Using that it will enable you to move/copy save files for games that normally not movable/copyable. This includes any wi-fi game, like Brawl, Mario kart, etc. The buttons will still appear dark in color, but they will function like any other save file.

    I finally got around to trying it out.

    The 'no copy' hack works.

    You can't move it, but you can copy the save file of any games you can't onto the SD card and then move it over to another Wii. However, the other Wii needs to have the 'no copy' hack to work.

    I'm not sure, but you would of had to play the game first, delete the file and then copy your file over.

    Old thread, but the solution link was never posted:
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Savegame_Manager

    I just used this today to move Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Brothers save files between Wii systems.

    It's just a homebrew app that you throw in your apps folder. There is no need to install anything. It's great for quick moves.

    That post is from 6 years ago. Go get Save Game Manager GX and use it to copy the save from the source Wii to SD then use it to copy the save to the target Wii.

    No. If you had made a NAND backup on the Wii before transferring you could have restored it and gotten all your stuff back. You can still copy/move the saves to the Wii and reinstall any WADs you had.
