The "Wii Backup Disc" is a service disc apparently used inside Official Nintendo Repair shops to transfer personal data like savegames and console settings between Wiis as part of a repair.

It's not entirely clear what it does; something it does *not* do -- even though it appears it might -- is allow VC games to be transferred between consoles. Instead, the user is told to redownload the games from the Wii Store (for free).

Note: "Change WiiId" is mostly useless. WiiId is only used as your "Wii Number" that you give to your friends so they can send you Wii Mail. When you pick it, it assigns you a new random ID.

It also doesn't boot on full bricked Wiis and it's unlikly that it repairs half bricked Wiis since delete all only deletes savegames/settings and not the firmware.

Though it should be possible to remove double/triple channels with it (delete all), YOU'D LOSE ALL YOUR VC CONTENT!!!!! (games + channels (Opera is VC too) )

(insert more explanation here)
