    I would like to use a USB drive powered by a Y cable on the back USB ports for backing up my retail Wii U games. I would also like to use a USB stick in a front USB port for vWii games. Are there any issues I should be aware of? Can I leave these both plugged in at all times?

    Yes. Search ustealth. You need to hide vwii drive from wiiu or else it will nag you to format it.

    Thank you - that looks like something I need. I'm surprised I've never come across this in any guides or stickies before!

    You cant, no. Not yet. Might be possible in future, but as of now, no.
