    Hello,

    Since the Wii's memory is pretty limited and the SD solution does not really like the WADs installed with WAD manager, I have a question.
    Say I need space on my Wii to install a new WAD. According to what everyone seems to say, I should uninstall the WAD using WAD Manager, as it clears all traces of the WAD from the system. The problem is, this includes the save file, and I didn't want to remove the save file, as I might want to play the same game again at a later date.
    I could copy the save game to the sd card before uninstalling the WAD, but some games don't allow it. There was an application for that (Savegame Extractor, I believe) but it doesn't seem to work for WAD games.

    What should I do, then?

    Thank you.

    Use Gecko OS's copy flag remover (if that's what it's called, sorry if I'm wrong, it's been a while since I've used it). That should stop the block stopping you from copying the file.

    Ok, thank you for your information. I didn't know GeckoOS did that. I did some reading on it.

    Unfortunately, according to what I have read, the GeckoOS rebooter stopped working on some update - 3.3, maybe? - and my Wii is on 3.4. I suppose this couldn't be done without some kind of downgrading, then?
