    you talk about the games installed to your console, or about the eShop download helper program?
    this thread is not about the program. you need to ask in the appropriate thread instead.

    if it's a problem on your console, you can't have more than 392 games, so I doubt it's what you're talking about.

    Yes I installed it to external. I double checked and I don't have any data for this game on system memory.

    I don't see how to access the disc with ftpiiu_everywhere, I see the sd card and usb but not the inserted disc

    I wasn't sure if ftpiiu_everywhere had access to the disc or not.

    you could try to use ddd to dump the disc, but you'll have to use NUSpacker to install the game. and you'll probably need to CFW to launch it anyway, so it will be the same as using eShop downloader.
    that's the only idea I have right now, sorry.

    Maybe someone else will help better than me.

    So Newb question here I have my Wii U all set up and running its not running CFW and has a USB Hard Drive 2TB Connected to it. Question like in the Wii Days where there was a desktop installer program for the Wii for that backup system aside from taking each individual game folder putting one or 2 games at a time on a 32 GB Micro SD Card putting it in your Wii U and then using WUP Installer to install 1 or 2 at a time is there a bulk way to install to your hard drive? It seems very tedious this way maybe i missed something in the reading.

    there's no other way to do it.
    there's another way, but it's even harder with more steps, so I don't count it.

    I have a WiiU formatted HDD with games bought from eShop installed in it.
    Is there an extra procedure if i want to use this HDD to install backups?
    E.g. Need to format the HDD again, the existing games no longer can play, etc.

    No extra steps. Just add the games to your existing hard drive.
