    Dropbox homebrew?

    Is there a homebrew out there in the infinite depths of the internet that allows you to connect to dropbox, or any other cloud storage?

    I would assume that you're looking for this to make file transfers to/from your Wii easier? Or perhaps for keeping multiple homebrewed Wii's synchronized? I don't think there's anything that specifically incorporates cloud storage, however, I do use FTPii for transferring files to/from my Wii. A little buggy, but it gets the job done.

    You could also look at WiiXplorer, which, according to the docs, has a FTP server AND client built in. I haven't used it, but, theoretically, this should allow you to transfer files between Wii A and Wii B, but not to Wii U! ;-) Hahaha, I couldn't resist.

    If I'm way off base here with my assumed motivations, then please let me know.

    Not that I know of. It could probably be done, but I don't write homebrew (don't know C) so I'm not entirely sure. If you're just looking for an easy way to transfer files without moving your SD card around you should check out Wiiload.

    You're pretty much spot on about making transfers easier. I believe I have WiiXplorer, but I've never been able to get much out of it, I can't really move files with it, but I'll take another look at it, thanks.

    Thanks for the link, this looks like it will be very handy in the future, considering my wii and computer are in separate rooms!

    You could always write something. I would suggest python. IIRC someone wrote a basic python interpreter for the wii:

    I could certainly give it a try, first I'll need to learn basic python.

    WiiPy (I believe that's what you're referring to) is woefully inadequate. If there is another Python wrapper for LibOGC, I'd love to know about it since I can write some Python.

    Given that even with the USB Ethernet adapter the Wii's maximum throughput hovers between 500-800mb/s, it's generally easier to just backup from the SD card. Every month, or at least when I've made a lot of changes, I use rsync to make an incremental backup of my Wii SD card and hard drive.
