    Neek stands for NAND/ES Emulation Kit. It allows you to emulate the NAND of the Wii to spare your real NAND from being messed with. That means if you did something to your emulated NAND that would have caused a brick if it happens to your real NAND, your Wii won't become an expensive paperweight. It also allows you to circumvent the rather limited NAND space that the Wii has. That means you can install as many VCs and WiiWares and your space limitations allow and you can have as many saves as you want. The difference between SNEEK and UNEEK is that one is accessed using the SD card and the other using the USB.

    I recommend using ModMii to set up either SNEEK or UNEEK if you are interested. For an even in-depth explanation I recommend searching the board for that.

    In addition to having as many saves as you want, it also lets you have your saves in a portable format, meaning if your friends' Wiis can run homebrew, you can have your saves right with you, without needing to take your Wii with you.

    When you set up a neek, is there an option or ability to clone the NAND into it (so I don't have to reconfigure everything from scratch)?
