    • When managing Game Cube Save Files, you have the option to move, copy, or erase them. Follow the step above if copying or erasing. If you desire to move a file, you will need a secondary Game Cube memory card to transfer it to.
    • The remaining option you have within your Data Management screen is the "Channels" feature, which also let's you copy or erase any Virtual Console games, or any general channel you may have loaded onto your console. If copying any of these, you cannot restore them on a different Wii system; the console will only allow you to use this data on the original place you obtained it from.

Tips
Beware of the amount of memory (free slots) available for saving files. If more slots are needed, purchase a memory stick, or back up your existing data. You could lose all of it.

Warnings
If copying any file(s), you cannot restore them on a different Wii system; the console will only allow you to use this data on the original place you obtained it from.
