    Bootmii Question

    When I started installing homebrew, I had to put my Wii backup to a nand using Bootmii. That was in August 8 of last year.

    Do I need to backup my Wii again, knowing I downloaded more VC games and have more save data afterwards?

    if you want to restore your wii with everything you have done to it if you ever brick your wii then that would be a good idea so you dont have to re do it all again

    No worries. I download my VC games from the Wii Shop Channel. I wasn't actually referring that all of you support piracy here.

    ok mate no worries just checking about your vc games, but backing up your nand is like making a system restore point on your pc, i keep my first one safe so i can always go back to a fresh softmod and start all over again, and i make a new one ever month or so.

    Alright, I'm going to try that.

    I'm pretty nit-picky when it comes to backing up memory. Especially, when things change here and there. :P

    You might want to consider using this too:
    SaveGame Manager GX - WiiBrew
    It is good if you are going to restore a NAND backup but want to keep your
    save files. I also use it in case I do something stupid like accidentally deleting a save file, or overwriting the wrong one. Not all save files can be copied to/from the SD card through Data Management, so it's a great alternative.
