    Identifying .wbfs titles

    Stupidly, I put all of my .wbfs files into one folder with the standard naming convention (ex. R7PE01.wbfs) and now have no idea what any of them are (without looking them up one by one). Is there any software that will scan this folder and move each file into it's own folder based on the WiiTDB (ex. move RGZE70.wbfs into a folder named "Godzilla Unleashed [RGZE70]")? Thanks for any insight.

    Hello, You can use wii backup manager to get your folders back.

    1. Open up wii backup manager and click on 'add' then select 'folder'
    2. Browse and select the folder with your wbfs files.
    3. All your games should now be listed in wii backup manager, select every game by ticking the boxes on the left hand side of each game.
    4. Click on 'transfer' and select 'WBFS file...'
    5. Browse or make a new folder for the files to go in.

    Unfortunatly every game will have to be converted to a wbfs file again, but it will place them all in seperate named folders.

    Ok thanks. So will it actually convert a .wbfs to .wbfs? Or will it know that it's already in that format, skip the conversion and move it to the new folder?

    WiiBackup Manager has a setting to change this for you automatically. Open it before you attach your drive. Go to Options, to Settings, and click on FAT32/NTFS. Change the folder layout to "Store files in seperate sub-folders". Under Naming Style select any style with "title" in the name. Then check the box that says "Automatically update storage convention when drive is mounted" and click OK. Attach your drive and it will automatically create named folders.
