    Okay so I am in a very desperate situation right now to restore my laptop's hard drive data. In my hard drive data I have my vWii NAND and keys backup, but the hard part about this is that I made that backup over a year ago and since then I have been formatting my hard drive and I really need that data. I will do anything to re-gain that data again. Thanks!

    Wait, so you had your data in there one year ago. After that you have been formatting and using this disk during the last year. And now you want to get back the data you had there before.
    Kiss your data good bye man.

    This is why I always backup everything before formatting. I've formatted a single drive almost a dozen times and no matter, I always manage to forget to copy something.

    I guess your right...
    I probably won't be able to get that data back. I will have to find another way to unbrick my vWii. I know how as well.

    Do you still have the SD card you used? Could try that and pray if you haven't used it much since then.

    I feel like I stored this data somewhere on a flash drive because even I am not that stupid as to not backup my vWii NAND...

    So formatting wouldn't fix my vWii?
