    • Drag-and-drop support for adding multiple files at once to the WBFS drive.
    • Easy to use interface which also reports available, total and used disk space at a glance.
    • Batch processing of multiple ISOs.
    • Rename discs on the WBFS drive.
    • Multilingual support (currently only english is available)
    • Indirect Drive-To-Drive transferring and cloning
    • Batch extraction and deletion
    • Channel Creation (NEW)
    • Using libwbfs directly to achieve greater flexiblity.
    • Use a separate worker thread to improve responsiveness when doing IO operations.

    • Qt 4.5.0 minimum (bundled with mac os x & windows packages)
    • OpenSSL (bundled with mac os x & windows packages)
    • A brain

    Instructions
    • Install using setup.
    • Plug in the hard drive or USB stick.
    • Run the application.
    • Choose the correct drive letter.
    • Click Load. (If you haven't already formatted the disk to WBFS, you can do that by clicking Format).
    • You should now see any backups on the drive on the right hand side.
    • You can drag and drop ISO files from Windows Explorer onto the left hand side or you can browse the file system in the left hand view.
    • Click the Process the import list button to copy them over to the WBFS drive.
    • Enjoy!

    Stop to say bad things, it use directly the libwbfs, so it can't be quicker / slower than others.
    Just be sure to use a usb 2.0 port (and yes usb 1.1 port is doing rather slow import, but just blame usb ).

    or you reckon I should ask this in their Google code?
    [ 4.0U ]-[ cIOS 38 r17 ]-[ Priiloader 0.3b (rev48)]-[ BootMii as boot2 ]-[ HBC 1.0.8 ]-[ WiiFlow 2.2 r414 ]-[ Triiforce MRC SS v10b ]-[ Savegame Manager GX r79 ] [UAE Wii/Snes9x GX/Wii64/SDL MAME Wii/DOSBox Wii/GxGeo ]

    It is said an expert is someone who has made all the mistakes. I don't want to be a Wii expert then..thanks to everyone at WiiHacks

    No it can't. It's a libwbfs limit when formatted using 512 sectors.
    You will have to format your hd with bigger sector size, but i don't know if it will be supported by usb loader on wii.
    And yes, questions regarding the software are better to drop on the google code discussion, i will no longer check all wii forums, cause it take me too much time

    Will definitely be giving this a try on OS X in a bit.. Since Im still on Tiger 10.4 I can only use an older command line version of wbfs and it has a nice tendency to corrupt ISO's copied over..
    My Mac's got more storage space then my Windows laptop and its a pain in the butt copying 4+GB ISO's over the network between the two to use the Win WBFS Manager..
