    New HDD - NTFS or WBFS

    Because of the fact that my HDD of 750 GB is full, I bought a new one of 1 TB. But now I was wondering, what is the best thing I could do? Just keep 1 wbfs partition like I have, or have one FAT32 and 1 WBFS partition? Of should I switch to NTFS?

    And if the last option is preferable, is there a way to do this automatically? Because I don't want to spend the rest of the year converting the game 1 by 1 manually to a .wbfs file.

    For me it don't care if I need an SD-card in my Wii, but it would maybe be handy if the CFG UsbLoader data is also on the HDD (covers, themes, ...). And another advantage I can think of is, that you can see the games on there on a normal PC instead of always the question of formatting the drive.

    But please tell me, would it be best to start converting my games or is there an automatic way? Because now I only have them on the wbfs-formatted HDD and on disc, but that takes 20 minutes each.

    Already thanks for those who can give me some advice

    and is there an easy way to do this? Or do I need to convert them back to iso with WBFS manager and then convert them to .wbfs? Because that's gonna take me weeks to finish that.

    And isn't better to use NTFS for the games instead of FAT32, because then I don't need to split the big games.

    New HDD - NTFS or WBFS

    Hmmmm....

    On my 1GB drive I set up a NTFS partition and a second 40GB FAT32 partition..

    I like the idea that the NTFS partition is easily spotted in WinDoz, and natively handles >4GB files. (Yes, Big file issue is the reason I switched)

    Been using Wii Backup Manager 0.3.5 beta 1 without a problem to transfer any file to .wbfs..

    On my Wii I have zero trouble so far with any game using WiiFlow 2.2 Revision 304: RC1

    My thoughts.. Hope they help
