    wbfs manger 3.0 problems

    hi,

    just recently started using wbfs to load of usb hdd, using usb gx, my question is, after i've loaded games to hdd thru wbfs, can i delete old iso off my hdd, does wbfs make excat copy of game??

    when i did extract iso through wbfs on f1 2009 it made file only 200mb i took off hdd and put back on to try and load it but it didnt work does this mean u cant remove once loaded???

    First off explane to me why you would create duplicate threads? Also your saying you want to remove the game iso off your HDD but yet still be able to load it? It doesnt work like that. When you place a game onto the HDD using that program, it will automatically scrub it into a smaller size and place it on the drive. Then you simply play it. If you want the game removed, you can simply remove it.

    Duplicate thread removed.

    I retain a copy of all my ISOs just to be safe. Extracting the ISO from WBFS manager should re-assemble to a burnable ISO but you'll need to be able to play scrubbed games to actually run it in this state. Not 100% sure why some people can't play scrubbed games and some can.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    @ tealc..... Your the 2nd person that doesnt understand why some people cant play scrubbed games. I have heard about that but myself dont understand it. When I first hacked my wii back in may, a friend sent me all the files I needed and helped me do it. He told me that as long as I stayed at 3.2 I wouldnt have to worry about my scrubbed games no longer working, but yet he never told me why.

    sorry dude isp went down didnt realise so clicked twice to reload thread,

    no what i mean is, i put f1 2009 on my usb hdd, accidentally deleted original iso from pc, i used option in wbfs to remove update keep rest, i wanted to make a backup of f1 iso, changing to bigger hdd soon, but when i chose extract iso from wbfs it made the f1 iso size summit like 200mb, i thought this to be weird so i delelted f1 off wfsb and relaoded the iso that it had extracted to see if it worked , but didnt, my question is just that, if i use option to extracrt iso from wbfs why does it not seem to work if i need to reload it back on

    btw @Tealc i donated to forums i just wondering why doesnt show up in my profile??

    lonewolf - I see the Site Donator graphic has appeared next to your name. Not sure what is supposed to appear in your profile, that's more an Admin issue rather than a Mod issue I'm afraid.

    Any ISO you extract from WBFS Manager should re-assemble as a 4.37GB file and not a 200MB one, or at least it has done when I extracted all my ISOs a while back.

    Jason - I never really spent too much time researching the scrubbed game issue as it didn't affect me with my Wiikey2. Before WBFS became the way to load games scrubbed games were almost rare, these days everything is scrubbed and full ISOs seem to be very uncommon.
