    Creating new partition on HDD

    Lil help please. My HDD is formatted to WBFS. I would like to store ROMS on it as well. At this point, if i create a small(5-8gb) partition in the correct format to store ROMS, will it delete the wii backups that i have? or can i create a new partition on the unused portion of my HDD? thanx

    Sorry I do not think you can do what you ask if you have the whole drive formatted to WBFS you would need to back up your games onto another drive formatted to WBFS or just a partition on another drive big enough for all your games then format your first drive and partition it the way you want then put your games back onto the WBFS partition of your HDD while leaving ??GB for your FAT32 or NTFS or Both.
    I think this is the only way out of your problem
    You can use a program like EASEUS Partition Master 3.5 to partition you HDD,I found it very easy to use

    No Probs It was tough bcos I'm High As F and I kept forgetting what I was typing about but I had the same probem with my first HDD it was 500GB and I split it 350 WBFS 150 FAT32 for movies but that wasn't long filling up and I couldn't add to it without deleting my games but that HDD fell and broke and I lost everything anyway so now I have a 1 TB with 250 WBFS, 200 NTFS and 20GB FAT32 for homebrew and the rest unformatted incase I need to move or extend any of the drive letters hey Zeus that melted my head

    u can alway use wii backup manager to extract your games as cisos so you can store them on a NTFS or Fat32 drive while you reformat your HDD
