  1. Yep! You can do both of the options you stated in your example.

    1. Go to the [System Settings] by clicking on the Wrench icon in your apps.
    2. Press Right on the D-Pad twice to select [Data Management], or press on the icon of 3 small blue squares along the bottom row.
    3. Go into the Data Management menu and then select [Copy/Move/Delete Data]
    4. Select [System Memory] and all the Games and Apps on your console will be displayed.
    5. On the upper right corner of the Gamepad you'll see [( x ) Select Items (Copy/Move)]. Press that button!
    6. You can now select all the Games that you would like to backup with their save data/files included.
    7. Now you choose to which external device you would like to copy the data onto.

    ==Things to keep in mind==
    +You cannot copy save data alone. You must backup the Game, and the save data is included in that copy.
    +If using an extHDD that does not have an external power source / wall plug, you need a USB Y cable that takes power from both USB outlets on the WiiU.
