    Question about WBFS

    I just copied three ISO's onto an 8gig USB drive using WBFS. File sizes as shown on drive are
    2.59GB 1.20GB and .68GB,
    I'm not much of a mathematician but that adds up to 4.47 gigs but WBFS shows the drive as
    Total space 7.45 gigs
    Used space 7.45 gigs
    Free space 0 gigs.
    What am I missing here?
    Thanx in advance.

    A disk that is 8 gig doesn't have 8 gig of space. That's the space of bytes. It's just a general markerting con. 1TB disks have 940gig etc.

    When your drive is left unformated, it is 8 GB.
    While your drive is formated, it takes quite a chunk of space.

    What version of WBFS manager are you using? I remember early on with USB Loaders getting something that looked like that. I thought it was the USB Loader that was doing it.

    Is that what WBFS manager says or the USB Loader.

    well first off the chances of you installing three games that fit PERFECTLY are so impossible its not even funny.
    im thinking it should continue to work anyhow. if not you can also try putting the game on it via uloader or wiicoverfloader
