I have a problem with my external USB hard drive, try installing a zelda breath of the wild update(WUP installer) but forget to activate "mocha" and the update did not finish installing, I left half and I left an error, after that no longer me I forgot the games I have on my hard drive. Is there any way to get into the contents of that hard drive and delete the half installed update? I think it can solve the problem if I can do that, my hard drive is still detecting the wiiu but it does not detect the games.

If you ever come across partially installed content, it would show up in data management in system settings. Installing it properly will fix it and make it whole.
You can download game updates simply by running NNU Patcher then running the game. This will officially download said game update and you won't have to worry about installing it with wup installer. You also don't need CFW (Such as Mocha) to install game updates as a side note.

The fact that your HDD is no longer detecting any games is beyond me. Turn off the system, reinsert the drive, turn it on and go to data management to see if any games are installed. Perhaps the file system became corrupted somehow.

"the file system became corrupted somehow" CORRECT...

I'm almost sure that happened ... what can be done in these cases ?, is there any tool that allows you to see from inside the external hard drive to repair or remap it?
the problem is that the external hard disk format is not recognized by any system other than the wii u

Are you using a USB y-cable?
Yes

Yes

Just making sure, one USB cable doesn't give enough power. As for the disk system, not much more can be done AFAIK.

Really sounds like a hardware problem, this never happened to anyone I know. Try reformatting the drive with your Wiiu and installing a game, if it works then it mus've been a failed file system which tends to happenon my PS4 during power outages.
My only other suggestion is it can be the hard drive itself failing. There's no way to recover any of your data at this rate. If the drive is telling you No, then there's a sign that something is wrong with it. For it to give up during a simple 100 MB or less installation, must mean the drive itself gave up.

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon

  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display
