    Since some time if I go to coursebot it will always tell me that some levels have been deleted because their data was invalid. Now it even deleted the level I was creating and wanted to save. (But I backed up an older version of it with homebrew so I guess it's okay)
    Does that mean my Wii U harddrive is failing? Is there anything I can do to prevent this from happening? What would you recommend me to do in case it's really failing?

    A big problem is that I created some levels today which as of now still exist on the WiiU (I believe) so I might make a backup again to save those. But that backup won't contain the level that I lost today. Is there a save manager for SMM or is there any way to put the level data together?

    Anyways I guess I'm gonna buy a usb drive and save the data on that in the future...

    you just answered your own question.use an usb ,format on wii u and use the memory management to move the saves in settings.don't now why it's doing that normally if internal hdd is full it will say it can't save.i never heard the wii u internal storage failing so move some stuff to usb

    Yes but I was asking if I can recover stuff from backups. Anyways I'll try to figure that out myself.

    Yes but the backup doesn't contain everything I had ... Well I'll try to upload them and then download them, seems the only option here.
