    Hey tempers. I've been having issues with my wii u and I want to try to format it in order to see if my issues are fixed. On the official nintendo website, they said that all internal save data will be deleted, and all data on external storage will be unusable.

    Is this true even for rednand? What steps can I take to ensure minimal loss of data after a format?

    Just back up all your saves with Saviine and then format. You'll be fine.
