    I've got an original Wii that was modded for me years ago by somebody else and uses an external USB hard drive to store the games.

    How do I go about making a backup copy of this external drive??

    I plugged it into a Win10 PC and the drive was Not recognized.


    Thanks in advance!
    -Brian

    It's likely FAT 32.

    Go to Start and scroll down to Windows Administrative Tools. Open Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management. Find the USB drive and select it. It should show you what the format is.
