There is no copy data feature I'm aware of, just move and delete. Correct me if I'm wrong!

If you formatted your hard drive with your Wii U, your files can't be seen by computers.

What Forest_Ranger said. If you're really concerned about your save files you could invest in some kind of hardware RAID unit that would be doing low-level mirroring and provide some insurance against disk failure.

Nintendo has said the 2TB storage limit is temporary so maybe when they lift that they'll make a provision for creating backups or offline copies. I know that once I have a bunch of disc downloads I won't be looking forward to the possibility of multiple days spent re-downloading my games.
