    Wii Backup Manager


    (v0.4.5 build 78)

    Wii Backup Manager is a WBFS management utility for Windows PCs. Wii Backup Manager is an excellent program that can manage FAT, NTFS and WBFS drives and convert between ISO, CISO, and WBFS files. There are also several automated tasks, the program automatically splits games and treats an NTFS or FAT32 partition as a WBFS partition and automatically creates the appropriate folder. Of course the program still has many other features.

    [SPOILER="Features"]
    Titles database
    Support for Multi-language WiiTDB titles.txt.
    Inline editing of titles, game ID and region.
    Use custom-titles.txt to store manual entry edits.

    Different colours for each title source.
    Original = Titles taken from the file because they already match, or don't exist in the databases.
    WiiTDB = Title renamed on the fly from WiiTDB database.
    Custom = Title renamed on the fly from Custom database.

    Enable WiiTDB/Custom titles in the settings dialog.

    Auto rename titles during drive/WBFS file transfers
    Use on-the-fly titles for FAT32/NTFS files/folders, without changing the internal titles.

    WBFS Drives
    Convert WBFS to CISO, ISO, WBFS File.
    Add to WBFS drives from any of the readable file formats below.
    Direct drive to drive transfers.

    Simulated WBFS drives
    Mount any drive with a WBFS folder and use it just like the WBFS drives.
    Use any Filesystem for backup of WBFS files. eg. Mount an NTFS drive with WBFS folder.
    Use the old or new .wbfs storage conventions. ie.A single WBFS folder, or multiple sub-folders. Switch between them in the settings dialog, with the option to auto convert when a drive is mounted.
    Multiple folder layouts. Title [GameID], Title_[GameID], GameID_Title
    Use sparse ISO on NTFS drives, instead of WBFS files.
    Select WBFS file split size. Auto, Unlimited, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB.
    Mount custom folders on the drive pages.

    Backup DVDs
    Direct rip to ISO, CISO, WBFS file, WBFS.
    Support for Multiboot discs, convert each game partition back to full ISO or transfer to WBFS etc. recovering the game's original disc title and ID.
    Batch mode. After a rip is complete, the disc is ejected and the next disc processed immediately when it's inserted.
    Direct burn from ISO, CISO, WBFS file, WBFS.

    Import/Export Files
    Read RAR, ISO, CISO, WBFS File.
    Write ISO, CISO, WBFS Files.
    Direct conversion from any of the readable formats, to any of the writable formats.
    Transfer any readable format to WBFS or simulated WBFS drives.
    Multiboot ISO support. An entry is added to the file list for each game partition.

    General
    Format drives to WBFS, FAT32 or NTFS.
    Extract archives files when adding to the files list, or automatically when needed for transfer/conversion.
    Add folders recursively.
    Automatic or manual selection of WBFS file split size. Automatic means unlimited on NTFS, otherwise 4GB.
    Select Wii disc partitions to keep. (Game, remove update or keep all)
    Select Display unit size (auto, MB, GB).
    Hide any drive you don't want to see in the drive menus, format dialog etc.
    Set friendly display names for drives.
    Multi-threaded. Start more than 1 operation at a time. eg. It's possible to rip a DVD to one drive, while transferring files to another.
    Progress panels are shown on the relevent pages for current operations showing ETA/Total expected time, transfer speed, current transferred size, percentage complete.
    Any operation can be paused or stopped at any time. Safely stop drive transfers etc. without damaging the file system.
    Buffered transfers for maximum speed, but the speed and ETA etc. can be erratic because of it. Speed is more important IMO.
    An MD5 Hash is calculated and stored in each disc transferred to a drive, so it's possible to verify the data integrity at a later date. The hash isn't calculated for ISO yet.
    Show/Hide list columns. Drag and drop to rearrange them.
    Incremental search on lists.eg. Quickly type "mar" to go to the next entry that contains that text. Uppercase = Full text search, Lowercase = Use only the start of the title
    Multi-language interface.
    Export game lists using easy to create templates.[/SPOILER]

    Changelog:
    0.4.5 build 78
    |-Fixed: The database "convert to internal format" freezes at 0.56% with the latest GameTDB database. A simple typo caused the bug that really should've shown up before.
    |-Changed: Update link to WUpload has been removed from the app, replaced with a link to the WBM website.
    |-Added: New features for the export templates that allow creating a multiple column table. See the ncwbfsstyle template. "Entry step" = how many entries to output between the [Entry header] and [Entry footer].
    |-Fixed: The database list wasn't refreshed after changing the settings. eg. Title colours etc.
    |-Fixed: After recent tests trying to get Direct3D working with WIn64, I accidentally got the OpenGL and Direct3D renderers mixed up.
    |-Fixed: Resetting the Original title colour in the settings dialog made it green instead of blue. That bug must've existed from day one.


    Basic Usage

    Select the "Drive 1" tab.
    Click "Drive" menu, select your drive.
    Select the "Files" tab.
    Click "Add" and select "Files..". Select your ISOs, CISOs, RARs, .wbfs in the dialog.
    In the files list, tick all the items you want to transfer to the WBFS drive.
    Click "Transfer" and select "Drive 1".
    Done.

    used this yesterday (64) ... very nice! It did throw up one small bug on a backup transfer i attempted where it wouldnt transfer certain games, COD BO being one... to solve i went back to 4.1 v 66 which worked first time... do you think its worth a mention to fig?
    Problem with this place is the tutes are that damn good that one could end up not learning as deep as they should... Dont just rely on the tutorials understand your Wii...

    Spoke to Fig over at gbatemp and he got straight onto it>
    by fig2k4 Thanks for the report, I'll try to reproduce this today. It should be easy enough because it seems like it's quite consistent with games over 4 gig.

    I have a feeling this is somehow caused by the progress updates, rather than anything to do with the actual data copying.

    One thing I've learned about Delphi XE2 is that it doesn't like divide by zero errors. Previous versions of Delphi weren't very strict with floating point divide by zero, but now they can bring the app to it's knees. I need to get out of the bad habit I've had for years of not checking for these. The problem might be related to the new way things are handled in the Delphi XE2, that were valid in previous versions.

    Edit: I just tested with SSBB and I get an error "Invalid access to memory location". It's definitely only happens with x64. It shouldn't take too long to fix hopefully, because I know which function it happens in now..

    Here's the fixed 64-bit exe. Just extract it to your existing WBM folder.
