    I have a 500 gig portable USB drive connected and loaded using a dual usb cable for date and power.
    I would now like to upgrade that to a 1tb external drive.
    What is the best way to do this. I would ultimately like to retain all the existing games and have room for more.
    I also would like to avoid orphaning games that the WiiU thinks are installed, but are not.

    Thanks,

    Hello.:)

    The "safest" and maybe only but unfortunately "slow" Method is to
    - plug first the new 1 TB USB HDD´s into your Wii U,boot it Up please.
    The Wii U wants to format it,please do it.
    - then power down the Wii U
    - please plug in your 500 GB USB HDD too
    - please go to the Data Management.
    Then copy everything from Disk 1 to Disk 2.Yes,it takes Time.:)

    Personal I have no Idea,if and how an Image/Cloning with for Example "AOMEI Partition Asisstent" works.
    It fails on recognizing the Wii U HDD,I think.
    If it works,I do not know,you then have Access to the left Space on the new HDD.:(

    Good Luck and
    Thank you.:)
