    I think I wbfs formatted my local c? plz help

    Hey
    I got the wbfs tool to format you drive. It didnt come with a very good readme and so I ran it from my pc. Little did I know that it must be done from the Wii. So now, I think my Local C is a WBFS cuz I cannot connect any removable storage devices to my pc.

    I've searched this issue where My Computer does not see your devices and people say to go into disk manager and change the drive letter, but the problem is that they do not show up there.

    Is there anyway of fixing this or do I have to re-format my Local C, re-installing windows again?

    Thanks

    I did not get exactly what the problem is, but
    Try Acronis disk director.
    With this program you can change to NTSC from FAT without need to format drive C
    But it does not work other way around. And i am not sure it works with wfbc,
    But instalation of the program and trying it will not make it any worse

    well for one if it formatted your local C isnt that the drive you have your os installed on so if it formatted that drive it would of wiped it clean am i not correct? are you using that pc now or a different pc ? because if your still using that pc and its loading windows then it didnt format that drive

    secondly you can format the drive you want to be wbfs from either your wii or pc

    Mave0708- you've got a point. My Local C wasnt cleared off, I'm using it right now and I still have all of my files, but I noticed the issue right after I ran the program. Maybe it just messed something up and now I have to find out what it was.

    Optik- I got Acronis and tried to convert my Local C, but I cant because it still shows up as NTFS. However, it was able see my drives to access them!! This program also allows me to change the letter drive, since for some reason it was removed(there was none at all), but it still does not show up in My Computer or in the standard disk management.

    If it does not show up in My Computer, but it does in Acronis, will Windows be able to recognize that my drive does have a drive letter, and that it is G: (what I changed it to)?

    After installing Acronis Disk Director, my drives are beginning to show up in My Computer, but when I click on them from there, the window comes up:
    E:\ is not accessible

    The maximum number of secrets that may be stored in a single system has been exceeded.


    Exupboy- So after reading this error, I tried the system restore, and when I click to restore it then says:

    Changes made to drive(s) E: E: after this point cannot be reversed because the drive was either excluded from system restore monitoring, or was turned off or removed.

    (yeah, it has E: twice)

    If you have important files on C, you should be able to get them of with help of Acronis
