(v0.4.5 build 76)
Wii Backup Manager is a WBFS management utility for Windows PCs. Wii Backup Manager is an excellent program that can manage FAT, NTFS and WBFS drives and convert between ISO, CISO, and WBFS files. There are also several automated tasks, the program automatically splits games and treats an NTFS or FAT32 partition as a WBFS partition and automatically creates the appropriate folder. Of course the program still has many other features.
Support for Multi-language WiiTDB titles.txt.
Inline editing of titles, game ID and region.
Use custom-titles.txt to store manual entry edits.
Different colours for each title source.
Original = Titles taken from the file because they already match, or don't exist in the databases.
WiiTDB = Title renamed on the fly from WiiTDB database.
Custom = Title renamed on the fly from Custom database.
Enable WiiTDB/Custom titles in the settings dialog.
Auto rename titles during drive/WBFS file transfers
Use on-the-fly titles for FAT32/NTFS files/folders, without changing the internal titles.
Convert WBFS to CISO, ISO, WBFS File.
Add to WBFS drives from any of the readable file formats below.
Direct drive to drive transfers.
Simulated WBFS drives
Mount any drive with a WBFS folder and use it just like the WBFS drives.
Use any Filesystem for backup of WBFS files. eg. Mount an NTFS drive with WBFS folder.
Use the old or new .wbfs storage conventions. ie.A single WBFS folder, or multiple sub-folders. Switch between them in the settings dialog, with the option to auto convert when a drive is mounted.
Multiple folder layouts. Title [GameID], Title_[GameID], GameID_Title
Use sparse ISO on NTFS drives, instead of WBFS files.
Select WBFS file split size. Auto, Unlimited, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB.
Mount custom folders on the drive pages.
Direct rip to ISO, CISO, WBFS file, WBFS.
Support for Multiboot discs, convert each game partition back to full ISO or transfer to WBFS etc. recovering the game's original disc title and ID.
Batch mode. After a rip is complete, the disc is ejected and the next disc processed immediately when it's inserted.
Direct burn from ISO, CISO, WBFS file, WBFS.
Read RAR, ISO, CISO, WBFS File.
Write ISO, CISO, WBFS Files.
Direct conversion from any of the readable formats, to any of the writable formats.
Transfer any readable format to WBFS or simulated WBFS drives.
Multiboot ISO support. An entry is added to the file list for each game partition.
Format drives to WBFS, FAT32 or NTFS.
Extract archives files when adding to the files list, or automatically when needed for transfer/conversion.
Add folders recursively.
Automatic or manual selection of WBFS file split size. Automatic means unlimited on NTFS, otherwise 4GB.
Select Wii disc partitions to keep. (Game, remove update or keep all)
Select Display unit size (auto, MB, GB).
Hide any drive you don't want to see in the drive menus, format dialog etc.
Set friendly display names for drives.
Multi-threaded. Start more than 1 operation at a time. eg. It's possible to rip a DVD to one drive, while transferring files to another.
Progress panels are shown on the relevent pages for current operations showing ETA/Total expected time, transfer speed, current transferred size, percentage complete.
Any operation can be paused or stopped at any time. Safely stop drive transfers etc. without damaging the file system.
Buffered transfers for maximum speed, but the speed and ETA etc. can be erratic because of it. Speed is more important IMO.
An MD5 Hash is calculated and stored in each disc transferred to a drive, so it's possible to verify the data integrity at a later date. The hash isn't calculated for ISO yet.
Show/Hide list columns. Drag and drop to rearrange them.
Incremental search on lists.eg. Quickly type "mar" to go to the next entry that contains that text. Uppercase = Full text search, Lowercase = Use only the start of the title
Export game lists using easy to create templates.
0.4.5 build 76
|-Added: Menu item on drive pages, "Tools->FAT32/NTFS->Repair WBFS files". This will fix most problems that cause games to show as invalid in WBM. For example, the corrupt WBFS header caused by the renaming bug below and also WBFS files that haven't been trimmed correctly.
|-Added: "Tools->WBFS->Recovery mode" now also works with WBFS files. If you have invalid entries in the list, this will allow you to transfer the games to another drive or ISO/CISO which will repair them.
|-Fixed: A serious issue with title renaming that caused corrupt WBFS files. By not rewriting the WBFS header when renaming the title, it removes the possibility of the header getting corrupt. It doesn't need rewritten anyway, so the code shouldn't have been there.
|-Fixed: (Issue #0000006) In WIndows XP, the visual styles cause the files list to turn black.
|-Fixed: (Issue #0000004) When I made some changes from WiiTDB to GameTDB, I missed the titles colour entry in the setting dialog. Because it used WiiTDB and the code expected GameTDB, the colour couldn't be edited.
