    You two know this exists, right? But I'll go out on a limb and say neither of you would know how to compile and or use it though :rofl2:

    Then you're not reading the drive on a PC, you're using a network file system which exists exactly to abstract implementation details like actual disk filesystems

    But you can edit it :) what you are asking for is impossible because each drive is associated with the console, which means that you can’t insert your Wii U drive to another Wii U. Which means you would need an adapter specifically for your drive

    Someone made a hard drive converter for Xbox external drives but it’s not the same process as the Wii U ones which have more security
