Wii wiped FAT partition of my USB external HD clean. WBFS and game ISOs still there.
I just soft modded my Wii two days ago. I had everything running great, managed to successfully back up all my wii games, had NES and SNES emulators up and running, etc...
Everything was working fine, two days of loving the new capabilities of the new Wii, then after shutting down from the Wii main menu and using the power button on the Wiimote then turning it back on several hours later everything was gone.
The homebrew channel shows up in the Wii main menu, but when i go in all the programs are gone.
When I hook up the HD to my computer I can see the WBFS partition with all the games still on it through my WBFS manager, but the FAT partition doesn't even show up.
I am going to format my entire drive again, set up all emulators and programs again, and rebackup my games, no big deal.... my question is how can i prevent this from happening again in the future? what went wrong? should I get a new HD? I am using a seagate HD
Thanks for the help....
I was having such a blast with my new soft modded wii when all of a sudden it was all gone :031:
