Nintendo Wii U Storage Expansion FAQ V2.0

#101chickenturkey10Posted 7/8/2014 8:36:36 AMmessage detail
This didn't seem to be addressed, so is it possible to have more than one external storage device show up in the Wii u data manager? I haven't tried, but I'm wondering because I have a 16GB flash drive currently plugged in, with a 32GB one coming in the next day or two.

I'm assuming the original information regarding VC & eShop game download sizes are out of date as there are games out that aren't on the list.

I was curious; if I don't intend to download retail games, and only want to download VC and eShop only games, would the 32GB memory be enough, or would I still need a HDD?

Has anyone used the external heard drive for their wii u from GameStop? I believe its a 320 gb? I'm wondering if I should get that one? Thanks

Has anyone ever had an issue where connecting a USB drive renders the internet connectivity of the console completely dysfunctional? The odd thing is, it's fully compatible otherwise in terms of transferring data and playing games and DLCs that are stored on it.

I just installed a 2TB drive yesterday and moved all the content from my 32GB system. The system memory now shows 25GB of free space.

Does that mean I can use the system memory as a backup for my game saves?

For example, if I copy just the game saves that are located on the 2TB drive to the system memory, will the saves in the system memory remain untouched while playing games and only the saves on the 2TB drive will be the ones getting updated?

Bought the Sega 1TB external. Great FAQ. Really helped a lot.

For a wii u, do games NEED to install a disc? Like PS4 and Xbone?

There is no install feature on the Wii U. Either you play the game off a disc or play the downloaded version of the game.
