    2 WBFS Partitions in hard drive ?

    Hi
    as we know the WBFS has a limited of 500 games in a hard drive , no matter if the hd is bigger and has more space .
    I have a hard drive of 2 TB (2000 gbs ) and I was wondering if I can partition it in 2 and put 400 games in each partition .
    Does my wii will see both partitions ?
    Does anyone try this already or something similar?

    Thank you

    I didn't know there was a 500 game limit (is there 500 wii games out yet?). I remember there being a 500gb limit but that was a while ago now and new rev's have gone past that so I gather.

    I do know that 2tb is not 2000gb though

    I doubt you could have 2 wbfs partitions, none of the USB loaders have a 'path' so to speak, so it would probably only read the first one it came to and couldn't be pointed at any others.

    yes there is because i already have 500 games in a hard drive and i cant add more , i still have like 150 gb free space .
    yes i know too that 2tb is not a real 2000gb , it is about 1800gb.
    your last point makes me think that it can not be done if like you said the usb loaders cant see folders or the path to them .
    it will be great if someone with a small hd can test this .
    thanks

    thanks

    At this time cIOS will only see the first WBFS partition. Not sure about the configureable USB Loader and whether it would be able to see additional FAT32 partitions.

    The Wii has nowhere near 500 good games, some are not even worthy of the space they take up on a cheap hard drive, let alone the retail cost or even a DVD-R (King of Pool for example). Like many other consoles there is a great deal of shovelware.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I have a wd mybook 1tb, I use a mac and the first partition is a wbsf, then the second is fat, 3rd is NT.. for data about 500GB, and last is about 250 for my laptop back up..

    This should not be a problem right? I was doing so and now my hd lost everything and needs a replacement.

    you are right about the games but i have them so i better store it in a hard drive .
    i start to think that is not possible what i want .
    Tanks

    To fuonge , dont write nothing else on it and use a recovery soft if you need to recover anything besides the games which i dont see how you can , unless the soft can see that partition .
    that's why i dont like tose configurations , its a cocktail for failure sooner or later , you should have a hd for each stuff , my opinion .
