I have tried the clone option 3 times and it worked fine each time. It does take a LONG time. I only had about 500 gb in games loaded and it took around 12-14 hours. The original drive was 1tb and the drive I cloned to was a 650gb so I don't think size matters.
I eventually figured it out. I had to delete the old partition and make sure it was active and the primary. When windows ask if you want to format just hit no and assign a drive letter then let WBFS format the drive for you. Keep in mind if you plug in the drive and try and open it outside of WBFS it will ask if you want to format hit NO!
I did try that format method you mention but it still failed if I just copied over a few games, however I tried the clone on my 2 8 gig ALDI memory sticks last night and they all work fine.
I have used this program 3.01 vers x64 for windows 7 and it doesnt allow me to drag and drop, could anyone help me with this matter works great with windows xp drag and drop, arghh!
Also there have been some CISO's lately are these compatible with WBFS, (not at the moment without drag and drop lol!).
Happy New Year and Thanks for this GODLIKE program 10/10 :D
love us guys from the UK.
Does browse still work?
At least that will get you going again.
yeh that works fine i think it is something to do with .NET Framework 3.5 SP1, win7 automatically has it but there is some issue somewhere, but i cannot browse for ciso that is why i wanted drag n drop, plus it is a lot quicker just draggin n droppin innit! :D
thanks for you reply
I haven't touched Win 7 yet, heck I'm still on XP Sp3 and if it ain't broke etc :D
Anyway - did you try running in Wix XP Mode or sometimes earlier modes work.
First off - killer app - saves sooooo much headache!
I have a 500G WD Passport - 250g ntfs / 250 wbfs.
Now this may be a dumb question - but after I use WBFS Manager and move the backup ISO to the wbfs partition - can I delete the file that lives on the ntfs partition?
(the reason Im asking instead of trying is b/c it took a while to get things working, and I dont want to jackanything up :)
Im assuming yes - but just want to be sure.
Yes, but - there's always a but isn't there? :lol:

Keep the ISO on your drive
Move the ISO to another drive as backup somewhere (preferably off the PC)
Burn to DVDR to keep a hard copy somewhere
None of the above and just delete cos that's what kind of guy you are :D
However, depending if that drive is for the Wii only, you may wish to totally reorganise your drive partition options as 250GB each partition leaves the NTFS partition as mostly redundant (unless it's for PC use/backup of course)
Don't delete those ISOs until you are happy with the final partitions sizes.
Decisions, choices, decisions, life sucks :p
ifc - thanks man - just want I wanted to know.
I have a 2TB NAS that I use to backup the PCs in the house, Ill just make a dir on there and drop the isos in there for backup.
1 more question ;) - is there an easy way to backup the WBFS drive?
