And if you consider that games can weigh in at more that 7GB apiece - Hyrule Warriors, for example - you'll soon find that HDD full to capcity if you buy most of your software through the Nintendo e Shop.

However, if you want to move across files to the new drive so that future titles install directly onto the Wii U, you can do that too.
