    yes if the game is larger than 4gb it will split the game so it will still fit and work perfectly, but wii backup manager get rid of all unnecessary data so most games are smaller the 4gb anyway
    and we ask allnew comers to post in the intro section first

    Yeah what robgee said. The games on FAT32 do not take up more room then if they were on WBFS (slightly less actually).

    Very few games are actually over 4GB and even if they are, they auto split so nothing to worry about.
    Damn I suck!!!!
