    Does the "scan and attempt at recover for bad sectors"-option format the WBFS-drive?

    I've been trying to find a way to make my hard drive be able to load in more backups without errors and thought of trying to fix the bad sectors in my HDD to see if it would help. I'm though unsure because I'm afraid it'll remove my WBFS files and format the WBFS drive.

    Is it safe to try fixing the HDD this way? Will it affect the WBFS drive and it's backup files?

    If your drive is WBFS and you try it, it will tell you that it needs to be formatted. Your best option would be to make your drive FAT32. You can do this without losing all your games. I have done a few hard-drives by using the WBFS to FAT32 on the fly tool. Very easy to do! http://www.wiihacks.com/content/425-...onversion.html

    I tried the program but it says my drive has "permission denied". I even right-clicked it as an administrator and it still refuses to work.

    Is the drive working ok on the usb loaders? I know my pc gives me the same thing as you, but I just ignore it.

    Yeah, it is.

    Thought of trying to move the new backups to my SD card, hope it works so I can play them from there.
