    Thank you for this software, it works great!

    I have a question about batch installing over the network. If you install 3 games does it transfer, install, and delete them one at a time? I was wondering if I can batch send a lot of games overnight (more than the SD could hold at once) and if it'll install each individually or if it will try to send all at once and fill up the card. I'd test this myself but it'd take many many hours just to see an error message.

    Currently, it sends one, installs it, sends the next, installs that. It doesn't delete them off the SD at all.

    It seems like it would be easy enough to add the delete on success as an option in the ftp INST command. Maybe Hikari06 will consider it for future development.

    That'd be a great option. What is the easiest way for me to then remove items from the SD? Remove it and plug it into the PC again? Sorry very new to the scene. There may be a good file browser for Wii U (Or I need to setup a proper FTP setup to delete).

    if you have the usb helper running, simply click the manage games button in the PC app and it opens a ftp window where you can delete stuff from the card.

    Does this tool work with different CFW's? (like HaxChi,Mocha CFW,CBHC,redNAND CFW?)

    or it only works with Mocha? (Sorry for the question, just checking because i want to use CBHC...)

    Yes, it works. Since it's only using the SD card, the transfer tool itself doesn't even need CFW, but what you're installing might. It can transfer a bit more efficiently under Mocha, but it's still only in the 1MB/sec range.

    So I'm having a weird issue. I have the helper transfer tool up & running on my wii u and am able to FTP files on & off of the SD card. However the Wii U USB Helper desktop application is unable to see the helper stating "No Wii U found. please launch Wii U USB Helper Transfer Tool". I'm not sure what's going on here as it used to work just fine, but stopped working at some point. I realize it's faster for large games to pop out the SD and walk the files back & forth but for the ~21 MB ish updates it's really convenient to use the transfer tool.

    How fast/slow is this supposed to be w/o mocha? Because I'm only getting 50-100kbps when sending a game to my Wii U. It'd be far faster to take out the SD card to transfer the file over manually :/

    Condescension 1, Comprehension 0. Your internet speed doesn't help you in this case. We're talking about the speed between Wii U USB Helper (on the PC) and Wii U USB Helper Transfer Tool (on the Wii U), not between the NUS servers and Wii U USB Helper.

    storage_usb works under IOSUHAX/Mocha, not Haxchi (or browser hack/HBL.) Keep in mind that the utility is specifically a companion for the PC app, which currently wouldn't be reading and writing to locations other then the SD. If I had to guess, storage_usb got mounted to make it easier for Hikari06 to test the install-after-transfer feature.

    If you want to get at the USB drive without running Mocha, you can use fix94's version of ftpiiu_everywhere under Haxchi.
