    just use WBFS manager to take your games off your drive keep them on ur pc until you have formated to fat32 or NTFS, and download Wii backup manager and use it to copy all your games back onto your drive....

    I know that will take some time if you have heaps of games but in the long run you will be better off using fat32 or NTFS and wii backup manager is a much better program than WBFS manager

    WBFS formatted drives is not needed or as stable anymore with newer versions of backup programs

    edit...

    + using fat32 or NTFS you can defrag and error check you drive using windows to keep it running fast

    Yes gx v2.0 release notes yes fat/wbfs/ntfs , but you should use wbfs or fat. It's recommended.

    NTFS works for me with usb loader gx 2.0 and wiiflow 2.2 r304 (249), but you still have to have your sd card for the covers and homebrew apps
