WBFS Manager 2.0
Wii Backup File System Manger 2.0 (WBFS Manager 2.0)
Written by AlexDP
-No black screen while adding or extracting. Application remains responsive and reports progress.
-Fixed issue with size information being covered by scroll bars.
-A few other minor fixes.
-Added rename functionality (thanks to Sorg).
-Application now directly uses libwbfs, rather than using wbfs_win.exe.
-Added icons for better usability.
-Added list sorting functionality (right click on each list for the different sort options.
-Added blocks used to status bar.
-Added visual indicators to "Games to add" list. Check mark if the iso was copied successfully, red error symbol if the copying the iso failed.
-Changed "size" label to "estimated size" in the "Games to add" list. Added iso size information. Reported estimated sizes are still estimates and may be significantly different from actual size on WBFS drive. Sizes on the "Games on WBFS drive" list are accurate.
-Added first time welcome screen with basic instructions.
-Added "Refresh Drive List" button in case a USB drive was not plugged in when the program started. Clicking Refresh Drive List should show USB drives that were plugged in after WBFS Manager started.
-Added support for dropping a folder instead of one or more iso files. All iso files in the dropped folder and its subdirectories will automatically be added.
-Added progress bars and an activity indicator to indicate the program is running and has not crashed to Windows XP users.
Note: There is no shared code with the other wbfs_win GUI apps that have been released.
The wbfs_win.exe from the wbfs_win_delta release is also no longer being used by this application. It now uses a cleaner, less hacky way of using the libwbfs source code for direct manipulation.
Note 2: Although I've tested this a good deal it's only the first release and it may have some bugs. If you notice any let me know. For the most part everything should be ok as the actual work with the ISOs and WBFS drive are done in libwbfs. Of course, pulling your USB cable out while copying files isn't going to help.
-.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 (the installer will prompt you to automatically download and install it if you don't already have it.
Supported Operating Systems:
-Windows Vista (tested thoroughly. May need to "Run as Administrator" depending on user's settings and UAC settings).
-Windows 7 (tested and working. May need to "Run as Administrator" depending on user's settings and UAC settings).
-Windows XP (tested by a few other users, should work fine.)
What it does:
This application basically provides a GUI for the command line-based wbfs-win, used for accessing legal Wii Backups stored on disk drives that have been formatted to the WBFS file system.
It provides all the basic functionality that comes with wbfs-win, including formatting to wbfs, adding backups, getting a listing of backups already on the drive, extracting ISOs from the WBFS drive, etc.
-Listing of games with titles, sizes and codes.
-Drag-and-drop support for adding multiple files at once to the WBFS drive.
-Easy to use interface which also reports available, total and used disk space at a glance.
-Batch processing of multiple ISOs.
-Rename discs on the WBFS drive.
-Install using setup.
-Plug in the hard drive or USB stick.
-Run the application.
-Choose the correct drive letter.
-Click Load. (If you haven't already formatted the disk to WBFS, you can do that by clicking Format).
-You should now see any backups on the drive on the left hand side.
-You can drag and drop ISO files from Windows Explorer onto the right hand side or you can click the browse button.
-Click the Add to Drive button to copy them over to the WBFS drive.
Completed Future Plans:
-Using libwbfs directly to achieve greater flexiblity.
-Use a separate worker thread to improve responsiveness when doing IO operations.
Remaining Future Plans:
-Additional info from ISO (Game image shown in Disc Channel,...)
-UnRar functionality to automatically UnRar files and add the iso to the WBFS drive.

-- hdd compatibility differs in XP and Vista.
-- read the change log of USB_loader to clear ur preference of OS
-- not only to work on " WBFS formatting", but also "ISOs Copying into hdd"
think abt it as a whole
